co-founder and CTO

I grew up in St. Louis, Missouri. Received my first computer at age 12 and the love affair began. Graduated from Missouri State with a BA in Computer Information Systems. I worked as a software engineer for a fortune 50 before relocating to Denver 13 years ago, working for tech startups doing the same and transitioning into leadership. I finally got the opportunity to scratch my entrepreneurial itch and now get to serve our most valuable asset...children, our future.
