I am a Seattle native University of Washington grad with degrees in Economics and Business/Finance. I am cofounder of the “Dent” retreat/conference and founder of the Parnassus Group. Parnassus is best known for the events we produce, notably the “140″ Twitter Conferences and Tweet House gatherings at CES and SXSW.
My favorite activities include skiing, snorkeling, wine drinking, good theatre, and playing hide and go seek with my Wheaten terrier.
I am a part-time angel investor who is one of the initial investors in ToyTalk funding team.
In the 90′s I cofounded Thunder Lizard Productions, a company that as early as 1996 was hosting conferences focused on Web advertising, Web design and Web marketing. Thunder Lizard was acquired by Fawcette Technical Publications in early 2000.
I am coauthor of the book “Publish and Prosper: Blogging for your Business” which was published by Peachpit Press in 2005.
