Hey there, here's a little about me
When I was 10 years old, I decided it was too hard to walk downstairs to put the trash in the big wheelie bin, so I raided my Dad's shed and setup a pulley-and-rope system so I could open the bin from the balcony and drop the trash into it. My Dad rewarded my ingenuity with $8, and that sense of entrepreneurship and carving my own path have stayed with me ever since.
Along with my cofounder, Jon Haslett, I started Dash in 2011. Actually, it was 1 April 2011 (April Fool's Day) when Jon and I sat down with our accountant and said, "we'd like to start a company, please." He thought we were joking.
Those close to me say I'm a collector of skills and abilities. I have a tendency to find something I want to know, and become obsessed with it until I'm convinced I can do it well, and then try and do it better. Then I go looking for the next skill to collect. This serves me well in the digital industry, as there's no shortage of things to learn, tactics to test, and experiments to run.
I've spoken with hundreds (if not thousands) of local business owners and believe I have the ability to provide a unique outside perspective; to view their business as they cannot (simply because they're too close to it) and see the potential opportunities they're missing.
