Michigan to Indiana, where I attended college. That wrapped up, so off to the West Coast- where I've been for the last year. Now you can find me near Ocean Beach in San Francisco.

What's most frustrating and rewarding about entrepreneurship/innovation?

Redesigns and making major changes to your concept can obviously be quite frustrating, as they requires your entire team to coordinate smoothly. The most rewarding part of entrepreneurship is meeting someone randomly for the first time and having them already have heard of your startup.

What's the No. 1 mistake entrepreneurs make?

The biggest mistake founders make is being unwilling to adapt or pivot on their original idea. I know firsthand just how hard it can be to give up on what seems to be the perfect concept, but the tech industry moves too fast- you can't hold on to something that just isn't working for you.

What are the top three lessons you've learned as an entrepreneur?

1. Don't be afraid to cut and run if its not working
2. Get reliable designers that can always make changes on the fly
3. You are always working, get used to it
