"Maybe we all have the power to make things a reality" - Eric Cartman

I decided that instead of reading another Fast Company article evangelizing about the next Facebook (or ValleyWag making fun of the next Zuckerberg) I would put my foot in the door and make my mark on this ever-influential corner of the economy. I joined the Startup Institute because I believe it will give me the hard skills I need to succeed.

I've held jobs ranging from challenging to child's-play, interesting to inane, but each job held a common thread: I was always selling something. Whether it's up-selling apparel to middle America or selling a campaign platform, I've always enjoyed telling that story. I don't mind being the loudest person in the room but I've never had much passion for what I was selling. I want to play an integral role in telling the story and nurturing the development of a young startup.

Currently I'm very interested in the emerging "Internet of Things," education technology, and self-improvement apps and would be ecstatic about entering any number of other sectors that make a difference.
