I’m a seasoned entrepreneur with over 17 years of creative and new media experience. I’m currently the Founder and CEO of Crashworks, a location-based attraction discovery app being incubated out of Idealab.
Prior to Crash, I held executive level positions at ThisNext, Razorgator, and Ticketmaster where I led the Design, HTML, Content, Marketing, and Product Management teams at TN and RG, and Design, HTML, and Content at TM. In addition to my role at Ticketmaster corporate, I founded and ran the company’s creative agency, Cottonblend, whose clients included AMEX, TicketWeb, Herbie Hancock, Sony Centre, Shows in Branson, and The Troubadour.
In 2008, I took Cottonblend independent and built an entirely new design and development studio from the ground up. As a creative agency, the award-winning Cottonblend worked with clients like The Hollywood Reporter, Business.com, DexKnows, and Crowdrise. The fledgling design studio also founded Cuteness Pet Community (http://www.cuteness.com), Crash Los Angeles (http://www.crashla.com), and The Pixel Awards (http://www.pixelawards.com).
I currently live in Venice, California with my wife, Lisa, and our identical twin daughters, Ella Moon and Hadley Star.
