Consultant and Fintech in Chicago, Illinois
I'm the Principal and Founder at Bobenhouse Industries, a Chicago based financial technology consultancy helping early and growth stage entities think through and execute innovation projects, product ideas, partnerships, and market strategies.
From 2009-2015 my last venture, Synchology: The Branded Payments Company, aimed to give consumers more banking choices by letting them bank with their favorite brands and earn relevant rewards at the same time.
From 2003-2009, I ran business development, product, and marketing at Prepaid Solutions USA, a division of West Suburban Bank and early pioneer in the prepaid space sold to Navigation Capital in 2009.
During the first internet boom, I ran business development for XPLANE: The Visual Thinking Company where we sponsored Garage.com events and traveled the western world like rockstars on the rocket fuel of information graphics!
When I'm not working on something fintech related, you might find me at a local Chicago haunt playing guitar and singing with The Webstirs or working on a new project with my other band The Sun Sawed in 1/2.
I'm a huge fan of great product design, clean UX, data, information graphics, a great hook, a solid beat, spicy food, and the color orange!
