we’ve got your back

John’s career has weaved in and out of software and finance since before he went to college, so it’s no surprise he’s in the FinTech space now.  A native New Yorker, we like to call him a Damn Yankee around the office, but truthfully he’s been down here so long he’s shed most of that New York City thing.  When we cant find him we check the weather – if it’s nice out he’s probably snuck out to the golf course, and if the weather is lousy he’s hiding somewhere reading a book.  At the end of the day he’s a total nerd, but we think that’s ok.



This is John’s 9th startup!
