As a serial entrepreneur, I’ve founded six companies in the past 15 years, including Displace, the first truly wireless TV, as well as Snapstick and DabKick, both media streaming startups that were acquired. I enjoy taking seemingly impossible ideas, making them a reality and upending the status quo across multiple industries. When I am not working, I enjoy spending time with my dog, Dabby, and playing chess or ping pong.

How money and people kill early-stage startups


Three seemingly counterintuitive ideas for the early startup stage.

User experience is the key to disrupting any industry


Looking at conventional products and imagining how advanced technology could solve some of their simpler problems can be an incredible first step to something truly revolutionary.

Sustainability doesn't guarantee success


People may seek out the sustainable version of a product they’re interested in, but no one is in the market for a product just because it’s sustainable.

Six lessons for startups from a six-time entrepreneur


I hope what motivates any aspiring entrepreneur is what motivates me: to create something that I want to see in the world.

Company details


Company bio

Displace is an in-home entertainment startup and makers of the first truly wireless TV that has no wires, no ports and is run by hot-swappable batteries. Unlike anything else on the market, Displace's 55" 4K TVs are super lightweight, transportable and can be easily secured to any surface with no mounting required, using proprietary active-loop vacuum technology. Multiple Displace 55" 4K TVs can be combined together to create any size TV – such as combining four TVs to create a massive 110" TV with 8K resolution. Unlike other TVs, a Displace TV can be controlled primarily with hand gestures to easily browse and play content using proprietary computer vision technology that allows content to be moved seamlessly from room to room.
