I was born by the river, in a little tent, and like that river I've been running ever since. DO SOMETHING SOCIAL
I was actually born in the relatively desertous area of Lubbock, Texas. My parents crossed the state line from New Mexico just for the occasion (and sanitary hospital) and now I've got all the privilege of a native Texan!
It was the summer of '98, I started playing the drums, and designing stick-figure animations with Macromedia Flash. Those two interests grew in parallel, branching into new and more technical forms of creative expression for another 10 years or so. Neither interest wholly eclipsed the other until my time at university had come to a close; I had a degree in advertising and I did not intend to continue sharing a single rented bathroom with two other gentlemen..
So we started a business. We literally had no idea what we were doing. However, after about 3 years of dark stabs and troubleshooting, our knowledge had swelled to the point of a legitimate focus... Helping startups secure VC investments.
My off time interests include hiking, biking, running, gunning, drumming, singing, wood work, yard work, hard work, car work, long flights, sunblock application, and dog wrestling.
