Before starting Giftly, Tim was at Aardvark. There he was the first employee at the pioneering social search start-up, that built the first social search engine: a way to find people, not web pages, that have specific information. Aardvark sold to Google in February 2010 for $50M.
Before Aardvark, Tim founded 1-800-Know-Now, a mobile search company that had human operators help find information for users by either searching for the information themselves or putting them in touch with the right person.
