Entrepreneur & 5x Founder. Teacher. Father. Writer. Tinkerer
I've been in the startup scene for most of my career and I've done just about every role. From CEO to Chief Janitor, Head of Product to Marketing Lead.
I have deep expertise in Saas, Content Marketing, SEO, Mobile Apps, Startup Accelerators, Lead Generation, UX, Angel & Seed Funding, B2B Software, Enterprise Sales and Bootstrapping. And I've been writing content on these topics for most of my career.
I co-founded Amplify, Startup Accelerator (3 funds, $15MM raised) and Velocify (formerly Leads360) sold for $128MM. Raised $35MM+ in venture capital. And I've had a startup fail miserably. I've angel invested in a dozen companies. I've seen over 3,000 startups apply to Amplify and been pitched by hundreds of entrepreneurs. And have raised more than $50MM in aggregate seed and Angel funding for our portfolio companies.
I am currently co-founder of Markup Hero, a screenshot & annotation SaaS tool and have been teaching high school entrepreneurship for 6 years. I'm a regular blog contributor to various high profile business websites and have been featured on a dozen startup podcast shows.
