Founder / Freestyling since 2009
You never stop being an entrepreneur even when you cross over to the other side. I have co-founded four companies and one non-profit. In addition to Freestyle, I started two successful Internet companies, Spinner and Grouper/Crackle, which were acquired by AOL Time Warner and Sony for $320 million and $65 million, respectively. I’m a co-founder of FYI Living, the “mythbusters” for health information. After a few years of exponentially freaking out about climate change, I decided to co-found a non-profit using social media to inspire real action. You can download our first iOS app, #climate, here. I graduated from Duke and Fuqua, where I’m currently on the boards of the Center for Entrepreneurship and Entrepreneurship Task Force.
I’m good at:
- Walking on my hands
- Running up Mt. Tam
- Screaming for Duke b-ball
- DJing as Frogprince in the desert
Can you believe?I have 5,000 empty beer cans in my garage.
