I'm a maker, a passionate eater, and a hospitality nerd. I believe an attitude of southern hospitality can transform every business, from payments to politics, and I love finding opportunities to surprise and delight customers, friends and family.

I started my career at American Express, where I saw this hospitality in action with over 250k restaurants in my small business portfolio. I was inspired to bring that same impact to visual artists, founding and leading Artsicle to be the largest artist directory in the world. Today, I enjoy consulting with a range of startup and growth stage businesses on their biggest problems, from acquiring customers to building technology to making key hires.

I wouldn't be where I am today without the advice of countless others who took time out of their busy lives to help. I still need plenty of advice, but I also pay it forward through advising startups, mentorship, and public speaking. Recent talks include: Big Omaha, Northside Festival, Columbia Startup Festival, Brand Camp Detroit, CE Week, HBS Cyberposium, & TEDxColumbia
