Team

  • Alex is leading Wooter toward one clear vision -- creating the world’s largest sports marketplace. At 13 years old, he made $6,000 by selling gold in an online video game (Runescape) for cash. From 2008 until 2014, Alex has worked with his father side-by-side building United Brakes & Clutches into the top auto and truck repair shop in Newark, NJ. Another accomplishment by Alex was turning $500 into $300,000 playing online poker.

  • David is our operations lead. At age 12 David was put in charge of keeping financial records for his father's medical office and he hasn't looked back. From bookkeeping to directing sales in his teens, David has gone on to co-found Gelfman Blueprint. With previous sales, financial, and management experience, he keeps the internal operations of Wooter running fluently and in a constant state of expansion.
