About Jeffrey

I am an Architect by training, and have been fortunate enough to have my stamp on a number of good projects in town. I have run successful Architecture, Construction and Real Estate Development companies, getting at one point up to 26 employees. I am smart and agile - I learn quickly. I've been around long enough to learn a few things, including a real respect for the old adage "Surround yourself with people smarter than you are!"

I am building a dynamic organization that is re-inventing urban transit in cities like Phoenix, Houston, and even LA. Please check out the website - www.future-transit.com. We are launching around the end of the year.

An ideal partner will have strong analytical skills, great communication skills, and an over-active bullshit meter. Beyond that, I'm looking for a technical partner who can help integrate and develop the various systems we will need; a passionate communications/marketing partner to build an army of passionate customers and employees; and an operations person to tie it all together and make sure it all works.

This is certainly disruptive - I've had it described as hacking the city. The models seem to work, the market is ready, and the technology is mature. The upside is huge, but there is an equally enormous effort in front of us.
