Description of Business or Organization

Change is one of those inevitable things in life. Today brings yet another one of those inevitable changes, as I am officially moving on from my current role with ActiveRain. I have thoroughly enjoyed working with the ActiveRain team, and all of the members, to build ActiveRain to what it is today. Right now, I have an opportunity in front of me that is too good to pass up. I will be founding a new, yet-to-be-announced social networking/media startup outside of the real estate industry. Similar to with ActiveRain and real estate, I see a very large market that has some unique problems in need of a solution and and it's shocking no one has previously put all of the pieces together. You will be hearing much more about it soon enough, and I look forward to being able to build something as passionately as I have been able to help build with ActiveRain. While I will be officially moving on from my current role with ActiveRain, I will continue to have an active role with the company, working on various projects. You will still see me around as I plan on attending as many of the industry events and gatherings as I can going forward. I have also been asked to remain on the Board of ActiveRain and will continue in that capacity. I look forward to making continuing contributions to ActiveRain as it continues its exciting progress – not just because I'm one of the company’s largest shareholders but because I love the community.
