December 2012Present (1 year 10 months) Austin, Texas Area

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.

The Zebra was founded in 2012 from the AlphaLab Accelerator program in Pittsburgh, PA. Since relocating to Austin, TX, we've raised an initial $4.5M seed round of investment from a syndicate that includes Silverton Partners, Mark Cuban, Floodgate, and Birchmere Labs.
