FORTUNE FAVORS THE BOLD.
Hi, I’m Scott.
I’m a startup enthusiast, business development consultant, web designer and adventure junky. I’ve designed and launched hardware and software in both North and South America while living and working on four continents. My projects have been featured in hundreds of publications, including TechCrunch, VentureBeat and CNET. I ran a crowdfunding campaign that raised over $170,000 in 30 days and have been accepted to participate accelerator programs in China, Chile and Ghana.
I grew up in Northern California and graduated from the University of California, San Diego. I lived in San Diego for about 8 years before heading setting sail for Santiago to participate in a global accelerator program called Startup Chile. My team and I were awarded $40,000 and 1 year work visas to build impactflo from scratch. One year later I found myself in Lima, Peru designing Embarkee with a friend I had met in Chile. After close to 2 years in South America, I headed back to California with the plan to spend the next year in Bangalore, India working with a micro-finance software startup called Artoo. Following months of Visa complications I decided to see Africa instead. I spent 6 months exploring Southern and Central Africa while building Embarkee and working with clients, including South Africa based, WooCommerce (recently acquired by Automatic / WordPress).

Embarkee is the first and only site to compare bus, train and airfare in South America. Customers save time and money by comparing prices, operators and itineraries with one click.
I designed and managed the development of the web interface before joining Moises as a Co-Founder.CHECK IT OUT
