    • I just love seeing makers fulfilled. Whenever I work on a project, no matter what it is, no matter how small, I get such an intense feeling of fulfillment when I’m done that can carry me for weeks. So knowing we’re providing that feeling for other creators - whether it's at Worth1000,
      Aviary, Adobe or Shapeways - is fulfilling for me. Enabling that passion, that’s my passion. 

    • I’m currently reading THE SHINING by Stephen King. I saw a trailer for Dr Sleep, the sequel to THE SHINING, and it brought back so much nostalgia I had to go reread it. So good!

    • For founders that are looking to build creative and collaborative platforms, services or companies, what are some words of wisdom you’d want to share?

    • Be super open. Share your idea with literally everyone, especially people in your target market. Get their feedback on whether it's a need-to-have, not a nice-to-have. Don’t keep your idea to yourself and hide behind NDAs. Secrecy at the ideation stage is almost always nonsense. Success is all about the execution.

    • hey Chris! I was so excited when Victoria told me you were one of the founders of Cake. I love the simplicity of the platform! Your company lunches at Smugmug were an inspiration for us to do the same at Aviary. Regards to Don!
