I’ve been living in Sausalito since 2014 and love it here. My wife and I are excited to raise our newborn son (June 2018), Taylor, here as well.
We’re here for good. This is home.
You may know me as the guy walking Arthur, our big gray Irish Wolfhound, around town. You may also know me as a chili cook-off chef, former Bridge the Gap volunteer, early morning runner, Art Festival Volunteer, ferry and bus commuter, current member of the Sausalito Pedestrian and Bicycle Advisory Committee, or just from bumping into each other around town.
I went to public school from Kindergarten through 12th grade in Hoover, Alabama. It’s a suburb of Birmingham that you may know from that early 2000’s football show, Two a Days, on MTV. I earned a scholarship to Georgia Tech and graduated with high honors, including a semester to study abroad to finish my International Affairs Minor alongside my Mechanical Engineering major.
I started my career with three rotational assignments for General Electric before trading coast and career to join a startup in 2005. I loved it, climbed my way up the sales and marketing side of things, spent three weeks a month on the road for two years straight, and have two positive exits to show for it – both as employee #20 or so, both in under two years from joining the company, and both included multi-year roles after acquisition to ensure stability within the broader organization.
As of 2018, I work at Common Sense Media, the nation’s leading not-for-profit focused on school-aged kids and their families. My day job has me 100% focused on social media, software, education platforms, consumer products and policy decisions that are impacting our students and their families. I also work from home on Wednesdays to do my share of dad duties and hang out with Taylor.
Whether you know me already or not, I look forward to meeting you.
