My journey to RevZilla began 40,000 feet above the Atlantic Ocean. It was the summer between my first and second year of grad school (GO BOBCATS!) and at the time I was getting kind of tired of books, lectures, theories, and research papers. So I figured I’d hop a flight to Barcelona. As our good friend Billy Shakespeare once said, "to unpathed waters, undreamed shores."
“I knew that I wanted to fill my years with as many similar experiences as a lifetime would allow”
One night I was eating dinner with two older Spanish women at their home in the hills overlooking the city. I didn’t understand a single word they said (like absolutely nothing), but between the wine, food, and a whole lot of laughs, I knew that I wanted to fill my years with as many similar experiences as a lifetime would allow.
The days that I spent in Spain were among the most influential of my life. Upon getting home one of the first things I set out to do was to finally get the motorcycle I had dreamed of since I was a kid hiding out by the Harley in my uncle’s garage. When I told my parents of the plan, I was still in school, deeply in debt, and without any real idea of what I would be doing after graduation. My mother went absolutely nuclear. I'm talking like 0 to 100 without touching 50. She made good points, but sometimes ya' just have to do your own thing. Besides, it was financed. It’s not like it was real money anyway (disclaimer: it actually is real money and you really do have to pay it back).

As I finished up my last semester in school I did a report on website design that lead me to RevZilla.com. Within a few months I had sold everything that couldn’t fit into one carload and moved to Philly to be part of the team.
As the Content Coordinator here I work on the back end of blog.revzilla, Common Tread, RevZillaTV, and our home site to ensure that our content hits the interwebs with the proper mix of geeky tech stuff and super cool James Bond / Indiana Jones kick-ass awesomeness.
Favorite part of working at RevZilla: All I ever wanted to do was tell the world stories. I get hyped being part of a team working to provide engaging content that hopefully resonates with people. So, my favorite part of working at RevZilla is the connection that we have with our customers, fans, and friends around the planet.
