Welcome!

I’m a Partner Manager at Builtfirst where I manage partnerships with software partners like HubSpot, Zendesk, Brex & more. I’m an alum/meetup host for a startup apprenticeship program, Praxis.

I recently moved to Austin, TX from Northern California. You can find me at Super Smash Bros. tourneys, wine tasting in Hill Country, or playing disc golf at the park.

What I’m up to

My Current Role

At Builtfirst, I work with our software partners like Zendesk, Brex & HubSpot to help them scale their partner programs in the VC, business community, and cross-merchandising partner channels.

Background: Small Business & Praxis
In 2021, I got introduced to the startup world through an apprenticeship program called Praxis. Since then, I’ve fallen in love with the community and organized a meetup in Austin (documented on my blog). I’ve learned and grown a ton working for early-stage startups and wouldn’t trade it for anything.
From 2019-2021, I invested in a small web design business called ICHRONstudio, helping local businesses establish an online presence. That’s where this website is hosted!

 

My Goals

I have two primary goals: build a personal brand, and build enough experience to earn a COO/COS role. I’ll do this by utilizing both my business and Praxis network, as well as Praxis’s unique educational process, giving me every tool for personal success.

The plan is to document both current and the past 2 years of sales, customer success, marketing, and operations work I’ve done. I’m always learning some new tools along the way to prepare myself for any challenge that lies ahead.

Tools I've Used & Consulted

I’ve either used, set up, or consulted on the following tools for my business & clients:

  • Google Workspace
  • ClickUp, Asana, Trello, and Notion
  • WordPress
    • WooCommerce (& over a dozen WooCommerce Add-Ons)
    • Gravity Forms
    • Business Directory
    • Events Calendar
    • SEOPress
  • Slack
  • Calendly
  • DocuSign
  • Front
  • Stripe & PayPal
  • QuickBooks Online (both Accounting & Payments)
  • Upwork & Codeable
Collaboration

If you’re on a similar path, let’s connect. You could be a fellow entrepreneur, Praxian, or share a mutual interest.
