Who am I? Who the eff are you?

I believe in entrepreneurism. I'm at Spiffy. I built and sold Automated Insights, ExitEvent, Intrepid Media, and a few more. If you're curious, it's all in my LinkedIn.
I made a bunch of videos in a series called Teaching Startup, where I and a few other entrepreneuers discuss the cross-section of startup, sports, parenting, and pop-culture.
I'm the frontman for American Titans, a loud, tight, intelligent, three-piece rock band. This is real. We play shows and record songs and generally try to keep the dream alive.
I've written for Hackernoon, Chicago Tribune, Smug, O'Reilly, GamaSutra, and other pubs. I've spoken at SXSW a few times, also NABShow, Columbia University, the United Nations, and other places and events.
