Company Summary

Stayhound is building a platform for people to broadcast to their trusted networks, identify shared interests with friends and “friends in law”, and help them create a trusted network of meaningful relationships. 90% of pet owners consider their pets part of the family, and more than half prefer friends to care for their pets when they travel. We expand their circle of trusted friends and turn their social networks into helping networks.

    I build user experiences that people want to use. I like to straddle the line between hacker and hustler and I play well with others. I've been working on internet startups since 1996.
