About Cal

I am an entrepreneur at heart. I've started two companies. One which was self-funded and the other which was funded by a silicon valley incubator. I have also scaled 1 of the recent startups from $150K to 1M in revenue in 3 years which lead to a series C round of VC funding from a blue chip Fortune 10 company.

Currently I am working on a market intelligence platform for buyers and sellers of watches. Think TrueCar for the watch market.
