Six-time entrepreneur, speaker, and consultant on the Lean Startup methodology.
I've been a proponent of the Lean Startup Movement since the very beginning and helped develop many of its core concepts. I've also been on the founding team of six startups of my own, including QFN.com (which became Intuit's Quicken.com) , Arch Rock (acquired by Cisco) and USA.gov (named USA Today's Site of the Year in 2000.)
My last company, Votizen, leads a chapter in Eric Ries's #1 Bestseller "The Lean Startup". I included Eric, Steve Blank, Sean Parker, Ashton Kutcher, Peter Thiel, and Ron Conway among my investors and was pleased to have lead Votizen to a successful acquisition in 2013.
I received my Bachelors with Highest Honors and General Distinction from UC Berkeley, and my MBA at UCLA where my team received the Deloitte Consulting Award for Top Thesis in the graduating class. I live in San Carlos, CA, with my wife and two daughters.
