Short Bio

Inspired by my older brother Chris, I began developing websites at 10. Since then, I've created countless websites and apps. One of which, Impossible Rush, was downloaded more than a million times. This app's success has led me to be featured on NBC, WGN, Business Insider, and more.

Currently, I am a co-founder of Uplift, an app that aims to make "made my day" moments as easy and frequent as possible.
