About Cory

I have one successful lifestyle business and I'm looking for the right opportunity to move into a new project. My current business focuses on the fine art industry.

Previous startup experience includes a digital advertising agency, big data & social media software startups.

My roles before starting my company included sales, product development, and client strategy. I'm good at marketing, sales, and creative direction.

Quote

"Stuff your eyes with wonder," he said, "live as if you'd drop dead in ten seconds. See the world. It's more fantastic than any dream made or paid for in factories. Ask no guarantees, ask for no security, there never was such an animal. And if there were, it would be related to the great sloth which hangs upside down in a tree all day every day, sleeping its life away. To hell with that," he said, "shake the tree and knock the great sloth down on his ass.” - Ray Bradbury, Fahrenheit 451
