When you were five….

What did you want to be when you grew up?

An Astronaut.

Who was your role model?

My grandfather was my role model.

What was your favorite food?

Homegrown sugarcane (yum!)

Now that WeddingWire is five…

Who has had the biggest impact in your success thus far?

The founding partners of CourseInfo LLC (later Blackboard Inc.); a group of really smart guys who journeyed as entrepreneurs together.

What has been your favorite moment so far at WeddingWire?

My favorite moment was having lunch with Martha Stewart and having her call me out for using dessert plates instead of entrée plates… I should have responded that I was using “portion control!”

What do you look forward to most in the next five years?

I look forward to being able to continue to innovate in the mission to help our local businesses grow their businesses.
