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.
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. Once the internet became a thing, he started a web design and Digital Marketing Firm to help small businesses grow their online presence. 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.

Allan was born in Louisiana and grew up in Alabama. He is the oldest of 12 kids… 9 of them are girls. He moved to South Korea with his family for a few years and then moved to Colorado Springs, Colorado, where he currently resides. He has been married for 8 years to his wife–she teaches music to students K-5 and plays the cello. And he has a super cute (and talkative) Husky/Pitbull mix named Penny. 🐕
Allan pursued a music degree in college and then became a music director for a few years. He eventually ended up in the service industry again–completing that journey that spanned for 10 years off-and-on. He worked for two different PourMyBeer locations in Colorado Springs. He is currently working on a certification in IT.
Allan likes to say he’s an “aggressively mediocre videogamer”, a craft beer nerd, and hilariously funny…or at least funny-looking. He hates long walks on the beach–cause sand. And he is always working on his BodyByIPA by enjoying all of the beers…just not all at once. 🍻
