Unbucket is about experiencing life together. It is about social discovery of new experiences and strengthening your relationships with others. I’m not only selling this concept….I’m living it. The very genesis and lifecycle of Unbucket is itself my first, and perhaps greatest, Unbucket list. Unbucket is the product of innovative thinking and hard work put forth by me and Elliot. Elliot and I have been good friends since our early college years, and Unbucket is a product of the common interests we share and the exchange of ideas between us. Launching a web startup is certainly a new experience for both of us, and it promises to take us on an incredible and uncharted adventure. As we build Unbucket and bring it to the world, Elliot and I will be living the Unbucket mission: experience new things with someone else.
I have always been passionate about a wide array of interests in life, and I try to take advantage of all that life has to offer. I have also been fortunate to have family and friends that help me take advantage of all that life has to offer. Really, Unbucket is a natural reflection of my life’s path. My interests have always been diverse, and included among them are entrepreneurialism and technology. I come from a long family history of entrepreneurialism ranging from traditional bricks and mortal retail to cutting edge internet commerce. I have always wanted to run my own business and I try to infuse technology into everything that I do. I have been programming for the web since the internet’s nascent stages, and I have always dreamed of starting a web-based business. One of my goals has always been to create a product that lives and breathes throughout the web.
Unbucket is as much about fulfilling my dreams and interests as it is about helping others to fulfill their own. My hope is for Unbucket to become a widely used platform that facilitates life experiences for others. If we can succeed in doing so, I’ll be more than happy. In any case, I am very much looking forward to the journey.

There is little I treasure more in life than those closest to me. I like to joke that keeping in touch is my favorite hobby. Some people garden; I make phone calls. But like tending to a bed of plants, maintaining close relationships takes time and sincere effort to keep them alive and healthy. Unbucket was born out of a deep desire to leverage technology for bringing people closer to each other.
Too often we sink our time into technology that keeps us passively connected with those we barely know, when we should be investing that same time into the relationships we care about most; in the near future, you’ll be able to use Unbucket to do exactly that. With Unbucket, we aim to combine the best experiences with your best relationships, all in the name of living a more fulfilled life.
On a personal note, I couldn’t be more excited to be a part of building this company. Many times I’ve walked up to the line separating entrepreneurial from entrepreneur, and the time has come for me to charge across into the unknown of the latter from the safety of the former. Ad astra.
