Introduction

  • From South Carolina and spent my formative years bouncing between Greenville and Charleston.
  • My career began as a stock broker for Vanguard. I learned very quickly that traditional finance is not what I wanted to do with the rest of my life...
  • On the side, I built a meal delivery service and grew it to $400k yearly revenue. I leveraged that to get my first job in tech at an e-commerce company called Blue Acorn (acquired).
  • Taught myself to program to create rcmmd and moved out to San Francisco sold on the startup dream.
  • Since then I've worked in e-commerce in various product/head of product roles for Puori (acquired), Scalefast (acquired), and Versus Systems (ipo).
  • Although rcmmd failed, it led me to my co-founder through a serendipitous meeting at a YC event. We're growing Deft together.
