  • I’ve opened up a new development agency called Booster Stage. We help bootstrapped startup founders create their SaaS products.
  • is another side project at the moment. It helps entrepreneurs grow their email lists using lead magnets.
  • MemberMan hasn’t done well unfortunately, and so I decided to stow the idea for now. The product is great but I picked the wrong market. I’ll post more on that when I have the energy.
  • I sold my previous business, Donor Tools, to my partners in 2015.


  • We just welcomed our fifth child in September. She’s a real sweetheart.
  • Bethany is teaching at our kids’ homeschool group, Regina Caeli Academy. It’s a hybrid classical Catholic school. It’s called “hybrid” because the students meet two days each week in a formal school setting, and the rest of the week is independent study


  • I had to give up on flying. My flight instructor retired (he was 89 years old, so yeah). The closest flight school is too far away to be practical, so I decided to stow that ambition for a while.
  • Shooting. I wish I could do more of this, but shooting classes are expensive. Still, dry-fire training is cheap, so I make due.
  • Gardening. In addition to the greenhouse we now have a new hugelculture and two fruit tree orchards. Each fruit tree is in the process of becoming a tree guild.
