Lead Growth Marketing Instructor GrowthX Academy

I moved to the San Francisco by way of Louisville, Kentucky where I worked in Sales/Marketing for a Biotech startup [Intrepid Bioinformatics]. Fundraising and traction were incredibly challenging, especially in the Midwest. I learned quickly that I wanted to be closer to the action. A one-way plane ticket and 2 pieces of luggage later, I arrived in San Francisco with a mission to help grow early-mid stage startups.

From a bootstrapped B2B company [], a seed-funded SaaS company [Wiser (now Quad Analytics)] and VC-backed recruiting marketplace [Hired], I’ve learned a great deal about success, and failure, at various startups across various industries and stages.

Other fun facts:

-Miami University (OH) and University of Louisville educated
-Prefer articles and guides to books
-Ping pong: name a time and place
-Ramen fiend
