About Joshua

I'm always coming up with ideas, but what I'm really looking for is the Ying to my Yang. Going into business on your own is not nearly as fun as finding the right partner. I'm hoping to find someone that compliments my skill sets. Let's build something awesome.

I also have money to invest from previous acquisitions of former businesses. Ideally, I'd like to find someone who is also willing to put a little skin in the game.

Previous experience includes:

CEO and Co-Founder of Qunify/Redpoint Labs (video game development). Founded in 2010 with a bootstrapped budget, Redpoint grew to 17 full time employees and 2 successful titles.

CEO and Co-Founder of EQ3 Northern California, a multi-million dollar retail lifestyle concept. Grew the business from a $50,000 investment into a flourishing multi-store and award-winning franchise with over 50 employees. Sold company in August, 2008.

I previously managed brands for Fortune 500 brands, including CNET, Microsoft, eBay, Sun Microsystems, and others, specializing in interactive media and thinking outside the box.
