I really like building things and as you can see suspenders and polka dot socks have stayed true with me through various life transitions.
Presently I'm the Founder & CEO at Agency Labs, we're an exclusive engineering and design partner to leading digital, creative and internal technology teams. We build websites, mobile applications and software for some of the world's most innovative organizations. Sometimes, we build our own.
Back in 2005 I founded Q Products, Inc. during my senior year of college. In under 2 1/2 years I launched my flagship "Jonathan's Q" brand of all-natural and gluten-free BBQ Sauces, Marinades and Dressings nationally into more than 10,000 retail locations. I developed a virtual manufacturing and distribution model which serviced every major retailer in the US and was one of the first specialty brands to penetrate the national market.
I really enjoy advising startups either at ideation, inflection, pivot or disaster stages of the business lifecycle. I serve on the board of the Western Connecticut State University Ancell School of Business. I'm a strong advocate for technology and entrepreneurship having a more prominent place in our educational system.
