I am a seasoned technology entrepreneur who thrives on the successful execution of visionary ideas as well as funding, building, and leading the teams required to make it happen. I started my first business when I was 14 years old and truly enjoy working with other entrepreneurs to facilitate innovation, form a cohesive execution plan, make an investment, or provide positive energy to help take that first step and get through the inevitable difficult times.
In 1997, I co-founded my first technology startup called HyperMeals.com, which enabled online food ordering from local restaurants for delivery. In 1999, I saw an opportunity in the electronic futures trading space when I noticed a small Chicago floor brokerage firm didn’t so much as have email, let alone any meaningful technology whatsoever. I pitched the CEO of Gelber Group, LLC to fund the building of an electronic trading division inside the firm. Over the next decade as CIO, and my incessant entrepreneurial drive, Gelber Group evolved to become a highly profitable global algorithmic trading firm with over $100 Million in capital and more than nine data centers in three different countries. I sold my ownership stake in 2011.
In 2015, I launched and provided seed funding for ReallyColor, LLC, where we built patented technology that lets you turn your photos into coloring pages and custom coloring books, and have sold gift cards in Toys “R” Us, BJ’s Wholesale, Sam’s Club, and others.
In addition to other various business interests, I have published a number of book chapters and articles touching on my experiences and vision of technology management and leadership. I am also a singer-songwriter having released a handful of songs under my own name and under the name of my band, O.I.S. Digital copies of my music have been sold on iTunes and other digital retailers in over a dozen different countries.
