I have a passion for personal coaching and mentoring and enabling more entrepreneurs. I use my background as a no-code maker, technology consultant, agile coach, business developer, and program manager to help people build delightful products and profitable businesses. Happy digital nomad, spending most of my time living in Mexico and Bali. Exploring mindfulness as a tool to become more resilient, insightful, and happy.
I started building and bootsrapping MentorPass at the end of 2019. I built the initial two-sided marketplaces with no-code tools like Webflow, Airtable, and Zapier. When I hit limitations with that, I recruited Lawson, my co-founder/cto, to take us to the next level. I've learned a lot about product, team building, go-to-market/marketing, fundraising vs. bootstrapping, and startups. I've also talked to hundreds of founders and mentors throughout the process and have learned a lot from each of them.
I've been living out of a suitcase across Indonesia, Mexico, and the United States through 2019 & 2020. Adopting this lifestyle has allowed me to break out of my old patterns, discover what really matters to me, and flourish. I've met some incredibly smart people and independent thinkers along the way.
I led an agile transformation program at a multi-billion dollar federal agency. I was responsible for sales, management, and delivery. Primary architect behind the Agile Accelerator approach. Led three teams delivering change management, agile coaching, and DevOps.
I led the SDLC process & tools team for the rebuild of Healthcare.gov. It was a 500+ person program and we had to create one standardized methodology across multiple teams and vendors.
I helped build the Consulting Group at Virginia Tech from 30-members to 80-members and implemented the operating model that is still largely in tact today.
Sometimes in the economy, monolithic entities that serve many needs disintegrate into an ecosystem of single-purpose entities. When that happens, there’s a huge opportunity for startups. Take, for example, Craigslist. Since its founding 25 years ago, Craigslist’s horizontal breadth, coupled with its shallow feature set and stagnant product, has presented rich opportunities for startups to carve off vertical-specific niches. This is illustrated by the now-iconic market map of vertical-specific marketplace startups aiming to unbundle Craigslist and build optimized experiences for certain categories, from Coursera for education to Airbnb for short-term accommodations.
