By the time I was nine years old, I was waking up at 4 AM to deliver the Waterville Morning Sentinel by 6:15 AM. I then launched Thriller Designs when I was in the fifth grade and Sounds Unlimited, a mobile DJ service, in the sixth grade. I’ve been a hustling entrepreneur at heart ever since. After graduating from MIT undergrad and working at Oracle for 1 year, I co-founded Spinner in 1995 (acquired by AOL for $320 million) and Grouper/Crackle in 2004 (acquired by Sony for $65 million). I discovered the beauty of the “shit business” and founded Brondell, a developer of innovative, healthy home products that’s #1 in the #2 business. I also chair Toi Labs, which aims to harness data for health analysis before it’s flushed away.
When I’m OOO, I enjoy mountain biking, snowboarding, and wakeboarding. Being a dad is cool too.
