Hello! I'm the co-founder and CEO of Tightrope Media Systems. Tightrope makes the Carousel Digital Signage Software and Cablecast Community Media products. We started Tightrope in 1997 and I have been applying my unique perspective on work, live and personal expression ever since. I grew up as a nerd (my first computer was an Apple II) and then went to art school (MCAD). I believe that entrepreneurship is an artistic expression and every business should be treated as an art project. When I'm not building companies I'm spending time with my wife and 3 kids on the lake, playing tennis, snowboarding, or hanging off the side of a mountain.
