Hi Austin!👋

I will be relocating closer to the city in October and am looking for my next amazing opportunity at a blooming startup. Ideally seeking a high velocity, customer oriented role that requires travel, as I am an expert in “boots on the ground” communication, training, sales, and implementation efforts.

Both of my previous startups have gone public or been acquired with myself on staff, so I can truly help take you towards where you want to go! Feel free to drop any leads below.
