Startup Chucktown is all about Charleston startups and entrepreneurship. I support all entrepreneurs that are looking for help, not just a select few. My focus is providing articles, resources and a community that will help get your venture going and keep you engaged in the area.

Lived all over. Idea fanatic. Designer.

Graduate of Savannah College of Art and Design in 2005 in Industrial Design. My love of the Lowcountry brought me back to the area. I've launched a snarky greeting card line, Cardonic LLC. I also started a children's publishing company called Star Pupil LLC. Several of the books are available on Amazon.

My vision of Startup Chucktown is to provide help to all entrepreneurs while being diverse and inclusive. Charleston has a rich assortment of booming industries including: Culinary, Aerospace, Medical, Military, Maritime and Technology. Fostering entrepreneurship in all industries will help grow Charleston's workforce and economy.
