What's your background?
Born in Springfield, IL, and now an official “transplant,” I came to St. Louis for school in 2008 and never left. (I guess you can say things come ‘full circle’ sometimes, right?) Since graduating from SLU in 2012 I’ve been lucky enough to land a spot helping college students start companies, and I’ve started a few of my own as well. Note: I’m a Benjamin Franklin-wannabe.
Why St. Louis?
To me, St. Louis can be a big city if you want it to be. It can be a small city if you want it to be. It’s cheap but wholesome, and for what I do, there aren’t many better cities around the country to start a company in (with fluent English speakers anyway). Though I’m probably one of the only people in the bi-state region that could probably care less about watching a baseball game, St. Louis is where I now call home.
