I co-founded MapMyFitness, Inc. and currently lead the Innovations Lab as the VP of Innovation Strategy.
Headquartered in Austin, Texas, MapMyFitness is a 90-person, 18M registered users, inc500 health and fitness technology company that powers the internet's largest social network of fitness enthusiasts and is the platform that other brands have build a connected health business on.
Our innovation has changed the way people think about their health and fitness. Now it’s commonplace for consumers to log their activity in a place where their data can tell a holistic story. We have the largest continuous samples of health and fitness data in the world and actively work with the public health community. Healthcare is changing, and society is learning that a corner needs to be turned in terms of diet and exercise. We have helped shape the market where health technology is getting smaller, cheaper and most importantly less complicated and essential for the everyday person.
The MapMyFitness suite of website and mobile applications, under the MapMyRun and MapMyRide flagship products, use built-in GPS technology to provide fitness enthusiasts worldwide with the ability to map, record and share their exercise routes and workouts in an online database. In addition, users have access to a searchable database of over 70 million global routes, online training tools, nutrition tracking, fitness calculators, event listings, and the ability to easily share their activities with friends.
I'm also active in the local technology / entrepreneurship community. I have been a guest lecturer on Entrepreneurship at the Johns Hopkins University and I've spoken at conferences and on panels regarding the impact of data, technology, and innovation on health and fitness. I serve on the board of Running USA and lastly, I have a unique perspective of the world after living in over a dozen countries.
