🙋🏻♂️ About Me
Hey there! I'm Steve, the founder of CoLo Consulting, Lead Beacon, and the HealthTech Customer Success Community.
My interests include entrepreneurship, travel, personal finance, self-education, philosophy, social psychology, and more.
This site is where I attempt to codify my learning through writing articles and taking notes on the books I read.
🏠 A Bit About My Story
I was born and raised in upstate New York until I moved to Washington, D.C. to attend Georgetown University. At Georgetown, I played baseball in between studying Government, Economics, and Business.
Following Georgetown, I started my career as a management consultant, first in D.C., then in NYC. During my corporate consulting days, I primarily worked in the Healthcare, Media & Entertainment, and Financial Services industries while being trained in the mythical arts of Powerpoint (only half kidding).
Then in July 2018, I sold all of my worldly possessions (really just a bed and a dresser) and went full-time on my then side project, CoLo Consulting. I packed my remaining belongings (i.e., clothes, laptop, passport) into a backpack, gave up my NYC apartment, and booked a one-way ticket to Bali, Indonesia (straight up Eat, Pray, Love style).
Since 2018, I've been building CoLo remotely, while "living" in 10+ different countries - my longest stays being in Indonesia, Vietnam, Georgia, Colombia, Guatemala, Costa Rica, Mexico, Canada, France, and Argentina.
In 2021, I returned to playing competitive baseball internationally (alongside building CoLo) and have since played in Canada, Mexico, France, and Argentina.
👨🏻💻 What I'm Working On
My current "day job" is building CoLo Consulting - where we help startups navigate growth and turn chaos into systems.
- HealthTech Customer Success Community (founded 2021)
- Lead Beacon (founded 2021)
Outside of entrepreneurship and travel, you'll likely find me reading, cooking, working out, or caring way too much about the fortunes of my favorite American football team, the Buffalo Bills (#BillsMafia).
