I'm a passionate entrepreneur who's never been able to give something half effort. During the summer of 2014 I built my first company. Ardivio Tech was created to bring innovative consumer electronics products to market, validating these products through Kickstarter and/or Indiegogo. With no prior experience, I applied for and received a PPA for the NeverSnooze Alarm
I'm a passionate entrepreneur who's never been able to give something half effort. During the summer of 2014 I built my first company. Ardivio Tech was created to bring innovative consumer electronics products to market, validating these products through Kickstarter and/or Indiegogo. With no prior experience, I applied for and received a PPA for the NeverSnooze Alarm Clock, built a fantastic founding team with two technical founders and one marketing professional, and worked hard to bring the product to life. While we raised upwards of $5,000, the product was ultimately unsuccessful because we solved a small problem in the marketplace.
I've since moved on to HomeCode, an all expenses paid coding school for homeless veterans. Our vision is to eliminate poverty among homeless veterans by filling developer positions worldwide.
Founder, CEO @ I created HomeCode to solve two major pain points: 1) homelessness among veterans and 2) the worldwide developer shortage. We offer our students a permanent escape from poverty by providing them with free room and board, addiction recovery services, counseling, financial management courses, and most importantly, development instruction. Throughout the program, we work with local tech companies to ensure our students have sustainable jobs coming out of the program. From September 2015 to Present (4 months) Greater Salt Lake City AreaCEO, Founder @ I focused on strategic partnerships to crowdfund production of the NeverSnooze Alarm Clock which launched on Kickstarter and raised $5,000+ in 40 days ( http://kck.st/1K8yCncWhile ). Unfortunately, our funding goal, which would have covered hard tooling and the first production run, was significantly higher. I'm extremely proud of the team we had, our creativity with limited resources, and our final product on Kickstarter. While failing wasn't part of the plan, I learned to solve bigger problems. The problem we solved at Ardivio Tech was more of a mosquito bite than a major pain point. From September 2013 to July 2015 (1 year 11 months)
