I'm an entrepreneur and startup advisor in NYC.

Previously, I was Founder and CEO of Trunkt, a wholesale marketplace that was acquired by Etsy and became the foundation for Etsy Wholesale. Reporting directly to the CEO, I led the team that launched the beta Etsy Wholesale product and I established landmark retail partnerships with Nordstrom and West Elm.

Prior to Etsy and Trunkt, I was founder and CEO of Foliomo, a marketplace for freelance visual artists which was acquired by a competitor. Prior to Foliomo, I was founder and CEO of Tangerine Tribe, a brand strategy consultancy with global Fortune 500 clients.

My early career was in advertising working for agencies including BBDO and Saatchi where I developed global brand strategies for clients including Apple, Pentax, Rollerblade and HP. I then moved into television and first managed digital strategy at NBC before leading the video on demand business at Hallmark Channel.

I live with my wife and daughters in Lower Manhattan and, as an avid street photographer, I mostly daydream about wandering the streets of every interesting city in the world.
