About Jason

I am a CPA. I worked in the General Assurance practice for a large public accounting firm auditing SEC clients. I have audited companies from a variety of industries including pharmaceuticals, manufacturing, bio-technology, and patent monetization. Many of these publicly traded entities were development stage companies. A development stage company is one that has not yet generated revenue from operations. I audited debt and equity transactions,"the financing transactions," the development companies entered in to. This is how pre-revenue companies generate cash to fund operations post-IPO. Additionally, I have taken companies through the IPO process.

As a recent accounting graduate, it is incredibly unusual to audit convertible notes and warrants. However, I was thrust in to the role after a supervisor abruptly quit my first busy season. I seized the challenge and learned an amazing amount of useful information in the process. I have seen what works and what does not work in terms of fundraising. After two busy seasons, I am ready for a greater challenge. Entrepreneurship! I found an idea worth going after. RideUp!

I am seeking a reliable, competent tech co-founder with back-end expertise who understands the meaning of hard work. After two public accounting busy seasons, I understand what long hours can accomplish.
