I'm a proud part of the founding team at The Zebra. We're building a highly innovative insurance comparison engine to make the process of shopping for insurance easier than ever. As an early stage technology company we all wear many hats, but I have the primary responsibility of overseeing our product design/dev lifecycle, marketing programs, & strategic business operations & opportunities. I'm focussed on design, functionality, performance, simplicity, and sexiness. Yes, sexiness. We're bringing sexy to the insurance space.
