Thanks for digging into my blog, it means a lot to me.
I’m currently VP Product at GoInstant, which was acquired by Salesforce in 2012. We’re building a platform to help developers build awesome realtime applications.
I’m also a Founding Partner at Year One Labs, which is an early stage accelerator. We made 5 investments, and to-date have 1 exit (Localmind was acquired by Airbnb). Year One Labs isn’t active anymore, but it was a hell of an experience.
I’m an active angel investor. You can find my profile on AngelList.
Before all of that, I was CEO/co-founder of Standout Jobs, which was sold in 2010. I’ve been an entrepreneur in the “web space” since 1996.
I started Instigator Blog in 2006, and I’ve been blogging (fairly) consistently since then. Blogging provides an outlet for my thoughts and experiences. I’ve learned a lot over the years – had some success (and more failures!) – and enjoy sharing what I can with others. Blogging is a great way to build relationships and maintain contact with friends and colleagues all over the world.
I live in Halifax, Nova Scotia (Canada).
