Golden Colorado

Grew up on the East Coast and went to college at Middlebury. I moved out to Boulder in 1998 in pursuit of my passion for climbing. Coach surfed up and down the front range for several years in search of the perfect piece of rock.

In 2001, I graduated from DU with an MBA and began my journey with small tech start-ups. First with 3I, a biological imaging research company growing their worldwide reseller network. Then I moved to ITN Energy Systems, as their business development manager, guiding their go to market strategy for their thin-films photovoltaic machines.

In 2004 I started at ReadyTalk, where I am Director of Marketing Operations handling marketing operations and marketing automation. When I started we were 12 people and are currently around 180. Quite the ride to grow with a company.

I live in Golden with my awesome wife and unbelievalby cute daughters Ellie and Adeline (6 and 2.5). I am still a voracious climber but now I have passed that addiction to my 4 year old and am working on my youngest. Life is good and I try to practice gratefulness & abundance each day.
