Full bio

Brian, our co-founder and CEO, is our big idea guy: He brings vision, energy, excitement, and leadership to Chippmunk. He’s also a ball player. More on that in a minute.

Brian has made a career out of helping people have great online shopping experiences. He started as a manufacturing supervisor at a stop sign factory and eventually moved to Operations Finance at Yahoo!. From there, he joined the Shopping Division at Internet Brands. He built the Shopping Division from the ground up, making 17 acquisitions and growing the operating team from one to more than 100 people — all in three years. The Shopping Division has a monthly reach of more than 10 million unique visitors and influences hundreds of millions of dollars of online sales annually.

He’s been an online shopping expert on National Public Radio, is certified as a Six Sigma Black Belt, and played minor league baseball for the Los Angeles Dodgers.

Brian holds an MBA from Harvard Business School and a BA in Engineering and Economics from Dartmouth College, where he was awarded the Kenneth Archibald Prize for high standing in scholarship and all-around athletic achievement. He served as the only 3-year captain since baseball began at Dartmouth in 1866, and was inducted into the College's Athletic Hall of Fame.

While Brian has lived in 10 states, he's come back to his roots as a fifth generation Californian who enjoys all that Santa Monica has to offer. Outside of Chippmunk, Brian tries to spend as much time as possible outdoors, including surfing, hiking, and bike riding along the California coast.
