Hi, I'm Brian. I'm 31 and am an entrepreneur.
began my entrepreneurial career while in college by building BookExchange.com
, my first startup. This company started off serving University of Kentucky students but now serves a dozen campuses across the nation.
After college I went on to start APAX Software
, a software firm specializing in mobile and web based applications. APAX had great success in its first year stimulating the launch of Awesome Inc
, a business accelerator in downtown Lexington, KY. Awesome Inc focuses on helping individuals with high tech or creative ideas turn those ideas into companies by providing funding, space, mentorship, and other resources that enable them to move faster and make fewer mistakes.
Currently, I am working with an Awesome Inc spin off called BuildingLayer, an indoor map company. BuildingLayer
focuses on creating indoor map applications. I am a co-founder of this company and serve as COO.
I also coach youth soccer for Lexington Football Club
& Lafayette High School. I am involved with the following organizations: Young Entrepreneurs of Lexington, the Kentucky Entrepreneur Hall of Fame
, Startup Weekend
, and Southland Christian Church.
