My Background

I work in early-stage startups, small ($0-2MM) and lower-middle-market consumer product businesses ($2MM-$50MM). I sold one company, built five and crashed two.

I currently co-own a small company in the pet category, but do most of my work through Basecamp InQb8r, my online platform that uses data and data science to understand, navigate and profit from the consumer product marketplace.

I live on a farm in Colorado with my wife and dogs.
