Born and raised in Piscataway, NJ. Played cornerback and ran track at Princeton University. Graduated with a degree in Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering. Got fired on my first day at my first job during the tech bubble bust of '00. Four years later finished bschool at MIT Sloan, auditioned for Donald Trump's Apprentice, wrote a business plan, liquidated my 401k, entered the MIT $50k and other competitions, then founded a very unique startup based on the most brilliant idea that you've never heard of...with a kicka$$ launch party.
Became an expert in ticket pricing, conducted technology seminars, spoke on academic panels, advised some professional organizations, while inking Dali and Escher tattoos. Was quoted in books, studied by college professors, and credited with coining the term "ticket futures". Five years later was sued for patent infringement (on 9/11, go figure) and bankrupted by bankrupt payment processors, while running out of time=money (didn't get the memo) during the economic crisis of '08.
Literally, changed gears, buswrapped the KDUB RV, and put on my marketing cap. Edited hours of game footage, launched web sites, and drove 30,000+ miles in a 34-ft. motorhome to help promote my brother, while he pursued his childhood dream. Won few awards but learned many lessons along the way. Reunited with the love of my life and doula'd baby Jordan.

Words I live by:
"The heights by great men reached and kept Were not
attained by sudden flight, But they, while their companions slept, Were
toiling upward in the night."
- Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
