Going back as far as I can remember, I've had a great passion for music & technology. I've studied music and played instruments since age 5. My father was a programmer for his entire professional career and I grew up with a PC.
My first experiences writing code were with Basic. My father bought me a subscription to Antic Magazine which was a publication for Basic programmers; which I did on a 64K Atari 800XL. I spent countless hours learning Basic by hand coding applications provided in the magazine and modifying and tweaking the code until I was able to eventually code from scratch on my own. I love video games, so it was only a matter of time before I was programming games in Basic.
Throughout high school and into my early twenties I managed and played in several bands. Programming was put on the back burner for a while, but technology certainly wasn't. My band years is what really helped me hone and fine tune my marketing and sales skills.
After college and a few more bands, it was only natural for me to pursue a career in marketing and sales. The internet became an invaluable resource to me right away. What a great tool to use for prospecting!
It was while I was working as an account executive with GBC (General Binding Corporation) that I finally came to the realization that I could be very successful leveraging internet technologies to generate income. That is what ultimately lead me to start my company.
