Stuart Starr Producer of that which has yet to exist

Ok I have decided that LESS is better than SASS. Sorry.

Personally...

I like to think about and build web applications, prototypes and stuff from Ikea. Often times when bored I will spend a few hours and launch a brand new and relatively useless web service. It keeps me sharp and I just plain like it. Other than building web stuff, I love to rock out, play tennis, avoid golf, and just try to enjoy life to the fullest.


History

I started building web sites in 1995. In 2002, after a brief stint in Investment Banking and later in video game development, I dove into the web full time. I've been involved with startups since 2004 building prototypes, helping with product development, cheerleading, dressing provocatively in the office, and anything else that will help move small companies forward. I have built prototypes that have lead to many seed and round 1 investments. Two of them were eventually sold for Kajillions of Yen.
