SaaS Founder and Startup Advisor in Rochester, New York
I am a startup founder building SaaS companies in the customer/consumer insights space. My companies include FocusGroupIt, QualNow and Advise.Us.
I am also the Managing Director of Startup Incubation at the non-profit startup incubator NextCorps, where I mentor over 70 startups in the Rochester, NY region.
Prior to my current ventures I was a co-founder of PluggedIN, which was acquired by Edelman in July of 2011. I then spent two years as a SVP at Edelman.
Prior to PluggedIN, I co-founded a boutique usability and user experience research firm, and was a qualitative research consultant at Harris Interactive (now Nielsen).
When I'm not working in or around startups I can be found hanging out with my wife and 6 year old, listening to podcasts, snowboarding or mountain/road biking.
