About Stephen

I've worked in startups and enterprise companies. I've worked in healthcare, taxes, and network systems. I've built for consumers, small businesses, doctors, and corporations; on just about every platform. I'm passionate about solving the big problems and helping small businesses and local economies.

Weird Street

September 2016 - November 2015

Weird Street is the first digital business association. Any problem a small business is dealing with, someone 2 blocks away has already dealt with it. Weird Street connects these local businesses to the business community around them. Using communication and services we help businesses owners solve problems, build their community, and give them affordable access to financing, insurance, bulk orders, and local services like CPA's.
