Start(ing)Up

August 23, 2015    

I’ve tried to do my homework. For 11 months, I’ve listened/watched as many podcasts as I could fit into my rides to/from work, grass mowing sessions, and morning jogs… highlighted by those featuring Chris Sacca, Elon Musk, Mark Cuban, Evan Williams, Kevin Rose, Tim Ferriss, Phillip Rosedale, T.W.I.S.T., etc. etc. I also read Zero to […]

One Week Review

August 7, 2015    

My day starts at 6:00 and ends between 11:30-Midnight. My lunch break is 15 minutes. The rest of my day is either work or daddy duty. It’s rough, but life as a policy director during the legislative session prepared me well. We’re less than a month from launch and there’s much to be done. My […]

Two Weeks Notice

July 18, 2015    

Yesterday (Friday), I did something for the first time…. turned in a “two weeks notice” at work. I guess it’s not that big’a deal but-for what it means to me, my family, and the future of PoliticalBank. Beginning Saturday, August 1, I’m a fulltime employee of PoliticalBank, LLC. A Saturday unlike any other, I imagine. […]

It’s all in a name

July 14, 2015    

I forget the first website name I pitched to Theresa, but I’m pretty sure it was “IssuePAC.” I liked the name CrowdPAC and tried to play off it. But, I agree with Theresa… IssuePAC is terrible. At least for our vision of the company. So what to name it… I played around on godaddy for […]

Batting 0.01

July 11, 2015    

Theresa and I met on the first day of law school orientation and got married six years later. During the life of our relationship, I’ve pitched to her approximately 100 ideas. Her typical response is either, “That’s already been invented.” or “No, that’s a terrible idea.” She’s a much better litigator than I ever could […]

So it was told…

July 8, 2015    

At the time, Blake and I didn’t know each other well. My knowledge of him was limited to being an ExactTarget alum. But because of this, I shared my idea with Blake while setting up for Penrod in September 2014.  He liked it, but suggested I reach out to Michael Cloran at DeveloperTown. In mid […]

In the beginning…

July 7, 2015    

As the 2014 midterms were heating up, all that we, the voters, heard were negative campaign ads. I thought, ‘wouldn’t it be nice if I could learn about candidates’ ideology in their own words?’ Then, lightning struck. I shared my idea with a buddy who directed me to a fraternity brother who teaches at Stanford. […]
