InfoI am a local businessman and digital entrepreneur, born February 7, 1973 at the University of Kentucky Medical Center.

I graduated Lexington’s Lafayette High School in 1991 and Decorah, Iowa’s Luther College in 1995 with a degree in computer science. In 2012, I graduated from the Berkeley-Columbia Executive MBA program, receiving a degree from both Haas School of Business and Columbia Business School.

Upon graduating from Luther College, I was hired at the Department of Personnel (now the Personnel Cabinet) to repair an employee insurance tracking system that had managed to corrupt over 60 percent of all records in its database. I managed to stabilize it after nine months, during which I started to feel the entrepreneurial itch.

In 1996, I founded Digital Crescent, Inc, Frankfort’s first dial-up Internet service provider. We later expanded to Lawrenceburg, Owenton, Shelbyville, Louisville, Versailles, and Lexington. This was my first attempt at starting a business, and it overlapped the dotcom bubble of the late 1990s. Digital Crescent lasted six years. I made many beginner mistakes, and am grateful for what I learned from them. It was a good run.

In 1999, I founded Kentucky’s own Fark.com, one of the world’s most popular news-aggregation communities. If you’re not familiar with Fark, it’s basically what happens when the Daily Show runs into the Drudge Report. I am still the CEO and sole owner, which is unusual for a digital media startup.
