ABOUT HIM & WHO HE'S LOOKING FOR

In a nutshell - I'm looking for my best friend. Someone who knows what she wants in life and is looking for a partner to share the load with. Someone who thinks cooking dinner together (I love to chop stuff!) and cuddling up to a movie is one of the greatest nights possible. Someone who likes to get out and explore the world while taking in new experiences. Someone who enjoys a healthy lifestyle and staying fit. Someone who loves hanging out with me regardless of what we're doing and isn't jealous or into playing games, and trusts that I want to be there to support her. Someone who is looking for a love affair to write stories about, and is so attracted to me that we can't seem to go even a few minutes without holding hands or putting our arms around each other. Someone who wants to raise a family eventually, while recognizing it will take a lot of hard work and commitment.

I think friends would describe me as intensely loyal, sarcastic, passionate, self-reliant, and intelligent. I'd add in that I'm quirky (read dorky), compassionate, and have the explorer personality type. I'm fairly reserved, preferring small groups of friends to large venues. I enjoy poking fun at myself and this crazy thing called life. I think sushi was based on a dare, and will only partake of it for a girl I really like. I like to challenge myself intellectually and love a good debate. I like working with my hands, and weekends are often spent turning wrenches, tearing apart my guitar, or working on a DIY project. I love live music, so I started a 90's alternative cover band a couple of years back – just a side project but it’s seriously fun to play live in downtown Austin!

A little about me:

After college I was commissioned an officer in the Army, and served in combat units for the next 7 years. I deployed to Iraq twice, the second as part of the Surge campaign. I've made my peace with it, but it has definitively shaped who I am. I know that if something is worth it, it's going to require a good deal of hard work in order to achieve it. And I know how to appreciate the things that really matter.

After leaving the Army I decided grad school would be a good place to hide out for a while and plan my next steps. I really enjoyed leading Soldiers and building organizations, so decided an MBA would combine those interests. Ended up in Austin because UT has an incredible program, and had a very unique opportunity to intern with some venture capital firms. After that I got bitten by the startup bug, and while in school co-founded an accelerator which brings together grad students and hi-tech startups to do market research, business development, and find capital investment. After 2 years in operation we helped around 40 startups raise over $30M in seed capital, and clinched $6M in gifts to keep the accelerator itself funded and operating - two things I find very fulfilling.

But it sucks being an armchair quarterback, so last Oct I made the transition to a venture-backed software startup. It's an incredible experience to influence the creation of a company from the ground up - every day is full of unique problems where I get to wear a lot of different hats, and I'm hopeful that I can help this company be successful in the marketplace.

The holidays (only the holidays once Starbucks brings out the red cups), Starbucks ;), finally getting something right after the thousandth try, a fast car on an open highway, live music, art and architecture, anything in the mountains.

Last read:

The Challenger Sale - reading every highly recommended book on consultative sales to try to figure out how to sell a new product from a company no one has ever heard of before to someone who is largely unaware they have a problem... ;)
