Following the Yellow Brick Road

 

While its hard to believe, twelve years ago this month, I started Latigent- my first company, out of a two bedroom apartment in Olathe, KS.

Back then, if I mentioned to anyone that I had quit my fat corporate job to found a “startup”- most would politely say “oh, that’s nice” while giving me the ‘are you fucking crazy’ look.

Wow, how time flies…

We’re not in Kansas anymore

A few years later, I got hitched – and Amy and I decided to leave Kansas City for Chicago. Amy had opportunities with her modeling career; and it made sense for me to relocate Latigent to where most of our customers and my cofounder were.
