Hello! And welcome to my personal blog. This is where I write about entrepreneurship, product management, greyhounds, productivity tips, and anything else that interests me and might interest you.
A bit more about myself
I’m a product manager and entrepreneur in my mid 20’s. I’m currently living in Ottawa, Canada working for Shopify but I am originally from Atlanta. I have two retired racing greyhounds that I adore. When I’m not working, I enjoy playing hockey (I’m a goaltender).
While I’m currently working as a product manager, I do have an undying hunger for entrepreneurship. I’ve been starting things since I was in elementary school. My first business was a woodworking business where I made custom birdhouses for people in my neighborhood. Later, as I discovered computers and learned to type, I became fascinated with the internet and got into web development. This led me to my next business throughout middle and high school selling iPod accessories online.
From there, I got into the software business, building a product to automate dropshipping processes. This spawned out of the needs of automating my own stores while I was in college at Georgia Tech. I eventually went on to build a company around this product, called eCommHub. Initially bootstrapped, the company raised over $7M in venture capital from investors including UPS. This was my first foray into building a team and culture. We ultimately grew the company to 35 people, before it was merged with a competitor in 2015, then acquired by ChannelAdvisor in 2017. While the process was challenging as a founder to go through, it was one of the most valuable experiences in my entrepreneurial journey up to this point.
Looking ahead, I plan to start my next ventures when the time is right. In the meantime, I’m spending time on myself and mentoring other entrepreneurs. Want to connect? Feel free to reach out anytime 🙂
