Josh grew up in Chester, Virginia, about 20 minutes south of Richmond off I-95. Sports and competition made a big impact in his early years. After being All-State in two sports, he accepted a football scholarship to play Linebacker at Shippensburg University. He still holds the career solo tackles record from starting all 4 years. Josh’s first job in hospitality was as a server and barback at Bottoms Up Pizza in Richmond, Va. Prior to PourMyBeer, he worked in Business Development with Modis, a publically traded IT Staffing Firm. He was hired to develop the Baltimore Metro market for the company. Landing several blue-chip accounts took that market from non-existent to a top producer in a matter of 24 months. One day in 2009, he decided he wanted to take a 95% pay cut, quit his job where he played golf 3 days a week, and invest his entire life savings in building a self-pour company. Yadda, yadda, yadda, here we are today after 3 significant chapters in business and life. To get the full story go to TapTheBigIdea.com
David brings over 10+ years of operator experience, spanning tech, product, and hospitality. Born and raised in Chicago, he spent his childhood growing up in his family’s bakery, his early twenties managing a bar, a fine-dining restaurant, and starting a digital product + software development company. Through that business, he worked side by side with hundreds of entrepreneurs and executive teams to design and build hundreds of digital products. Growing that business to ~130 people in under five years, he then sold to GoHealth, a now public company. He’s been fortunate to share his experience with several other hospitality businesses as an investor and advisor, supporting them through growth and exit.
David is a builder at heart alongside his wife, Brittany, a fellow entrepreneur, creative powerhouse, and catering + event savant. Chicago is where they call home with their two kids, Duke and Henry. He spends most of his free time trying to drain their seemingly endless energy, taking lots of shots on goal and some to the face. He is an avid skeet shooter, a former motorcycle racer, a reluctant foot massager, and an enthusiastic fort builder.
Carl grew up in Pennsylvania, just south of Philadelphia, and graduated from West Chester University with a degree in Business Management. An avid automotive enthusiast, he has driven everything from a Lamborghini to a Russian Tank and even raced forklifts on the Daytona International Speedway.

That led to a long digital technology career with an interesting mix of corporate and entrepreneurial ventures. In late 2020, after 13 years of building a successful B2B SaaS business, he decided to sell his company to a private equity firm to make room for his next challenge.
Ed hails from the great state of Connecticut, growing up not too far from the birthplace of PT Barnum, which could explain his affinity for sales, marketing, and being an all-around Showman. Despite being born in North Carolina and growing up in “Southern Connecticut” (yes, that’s a thing), Ed headed north for college to the frigid but beautiful University of Vermont, where he enjoyed creating volatile organic compounds as he earned his degree in Chemistry. Graduating unscathed, he decided to play it safe, stay away from the chem lab and take a job at an Internet start-up in Boston. This started his long career growing sales at innovative tech companies, from heading up sales & marketing at boot-strapped start-ups to those with $200mm in series A funding. Today he resides in Santa Monica, CA, where he enjoys getting out to the ocean and the mountains and exploring Hollywood filming locations.

Representing the Greek contingent on our team, William is the product of an entrepreneurial family that is the proud owners of the Metro Bowl for over 61 years and counting. Another fun fact about William is that he and his wife Suzy spent a good portion of the ’90s booked for wedding entertainment and DJ services.

He co-developed an inkjet refilling machine which he marketed and sold to the largest drugstore chain in the United States with sales exceeding $180 million. His knowledge and expertise of the self-pour space can be tied to his invention of the SmartBar, the world’s first totally automated self-contained bar.
