About

Serial technology entrepreneur, CTO, indie board-game aficionado. Last few companies include: - Creator, Firetower: a revolutionary JavaScript error tracking application, bought by Crashlytics in 2012. - Founder, Boundless: a Venrock-backed education startup, producing free online textbooks from openly available materials, acquired in 2013. - Board-member ProfitWell (formerly Price Intelligently): bootstrapped SaaS for SaaS, helping companies analyze and act on their customer relationships, as well as optimize their pricing to maximize success. Ironically, this has led me to the SaaS consumer side, and my co-founding of Blissfully in 2016. We help growing companies, that leverage hundreds of vendors & app, take control of their "SaaS sprawl". We're now up to several hundred happy customers, and I'm always on the lookout for new engineering talent, as well as for product feedback - it's a complicated problem, and we are in the this for the long-haul! Please connect with me if you'd like to talk shop, check out our SaaS management product and provide critical feedback, or if you'd be a fit for any of our open roles: https://angel.co/company/blissfully . (Or even if you just some sommelier-style board-game suggestions)

Price Intelligently

Co-founder and Board Member

Co-founder, and non-operational board member / advisor. -- Revolutionizing how businesses price their products and services through technology that leverages existing and potential customers to determine true value. We built our technology because too many companies are relying on faulty data, competitive benchmarks, or "gut feelings" to set the most important lever in their business, and therefore are leaving an enormous amount of cash on the table. Essentially, we're nerds and we love it.
