I originally grew up in upstate New York. In a former life, I've been a professional snowboarder, a teacher of English as a Foreign Language (in Bratislava, Slovakia), and a construction project manager. I lived in New York City from 2000 to 2010 where I primarily worked in film/video production. How ironic that I came to LA and quit that to get involved in a tech startup. My primary pleasures in life come from being close to my loved ones -- particularly my son, backpacking, snowboarding, getting to know all the wonderful people I come into contact with, and traveling. My life motto is to show care and to nurture everyone around me as much as I can according to their needs, but not to the detriment of myself or my dearest family and friends.
