Seed Sumo
The Keeper of Cool
College Station, Texas

I'm a firm believer that your title shouldn't entitle you! Life's too short to be serious all the time so although my official title is "The Keeper of Cool" I also act as "The Stiffarm of Seriousness" for Seed Sumo, which I am a Co-Founder.

Seed Sumo is a startup accelerator based out of Bryan/College Station, TX.  We invest in 8-10 early stage startup companies a year and put them through an intensive boot camp for 3 months each summer. Although most of the companies we invest in are expected to attend the accelerator we also have a seed fund that invests in larger financing rounds. We look for hungry, well thought out teams that move fast and think big.

Prior to Seed Sumo I lead large teams in the heavy lift and heavy haul business. Although this very different than a startup I learned valuable lessons in teamwork and attention to detail. My love of fitness lead me to partner in a Crossfit gym in 2012 and soon after to start Seed Sumo with three of my best friends from childhood. I enjoy duck hunting, basketball, golf, wake surfing, and basically anything to do with fitness. Spending time with friends over good food ranks up there as well.
