Three years ago I married the love of my life, my best friend, and my soulmate. Faster forward to today and I can tell you that not only is the magic still there, it’s stronger than ever.
Over the last three years Daina and I have worked hard to weave our lives together so that we spent a majority of our time together. When the photo above was taken Daina would spend her days at UCLA and I spent my days at Sonos, that amounted to 50-60 hours a week that we spent away from each other.
Our dream was to change that and to go even further and work together to change the world. Fast-forward to today and those 50-60 hours that we used to spend away from each other, we now spend together, changing the world. We are living our dream and it feels amazing.
What started out as a two-person company with an angel investment from Mark Cuban has now become a venture-backed startup and what I call all the time, “The Dream Team”
It has been an incredible journey and I couldn’t imagine going on this adventure with anyone else. Our team is continuing to grow and doing this together is so satisfying and so incredibly humbling. Some of you might remember when we first dipped our toe in the water of working together with Appraiso.
It was this experience, spanning nights and weekends for over a year that we learned we didn’t just love each other, we loved working together. Daina is a strong CEO, a brilliant leader, and a truly incredible person, she is my best friend, the love of my life, and without a doubt, my soulmate.
Given everything that has happened over the last three years I can’t wait to see where our lives are three years from now!
