I don’t speak in the third person, so I’m not going to write about myself that way. That’d be weird.
While I generally can’t stand how most people answer the question “What do you do?” with their current employment, for a long time that was actually a perfect response for me. I was, until recently, the founder of a venture-backed tech startup - Shelby.tv, the best way to discover and enjoy video.
All I did was, well, that.
For better or worse, that existential mirage no longer exists. Now, I get paid to do business development at Samsung (We’re building some revolutionary stuff. Stay tuned), but what I do goes well beyond that. This site exists to document some of those things, but you can also follow along here, here and here.
In the meantime, here are the cliff notes of my history…
Before Shelby.tv I cofounded HomeField, as SaaS video platform for athletics. I got my start in video/digital media at Brown University where I studied in the Modern Culture & Media department before working as an assistant editor in television, and later as Bobby Farrelly’s assistant on “The Heartbreak Kid.”
I’m originally from Falmouth, MA, a quiet seaside tourist town on Cape Cod and I grew up in the family restaurant business, through which I learned everything about hard work and building from scratch.
I’m known as being a tenacious hustler-type, but I’m really an anything but prototypical, probably goofier than you’d expect, non-technical cofounder guy who is just lucky to work and be friends with a lot of really smart people while trying to put a dent in the universe, and writing run-on sentences.
Love adventure, surf, snow, scuba, travel, nature, art, and the many wonders of this fascinating planet.
