SaaS Founder, Entrepreneur, and Startup Advisor in Rochester, New York
I am an entrepreneur building SaaS startups in the marketing research and customer insights space.
My current startup ventures include FocusGroupIt (focusgroupit.com), QualNow (qualnow.com) and Advise.Us (advise.us).
I am also the part-time Director of Startup Incubation at NextCorps (nextcorps.org) where I guide early-stage startups through the customer discovery process.
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 on Reddit or Hacker News, listening to podcasts, snowboarding and mountain/road biking.
