Who I Am  

A Little About Me

I am inspired most when helping solve complex world problems and doing meaningful work. I've started multiple successful companies and each one's learnings have allowed me to build on the shoulders of the one before it. I'm currently the Chief Development Officer at Shtudy (Shtudy.co). I absolutely love music, spanning most genres and generations... if you have any music suggestions feel free to share!

Interesting Factoid

I've spent the last 6 years building a curriculum for a better education system.

Bucket List  

Retire Young, Travel the World Freely and Learn/Study History that Interests Me

Ideally for a few years in my mid-late 30's. Then re-assessing where I can make the greatest impact, and diving back in.

Consider Running for Governor of New Hampshire

If I believe I can make a significant impact and truly help people by running for the position, I will. A few of my leading goals would be to make New Hampshire have the top K-12 education system in the country, the happiest young people in the country and in general marrying social issue awareness with strong fiscal understanding.
