I started my first business at the age of ten. After completing a science degree at the University of Manitoba, I decided not to pursue medicine like the rest of my family. Instead, I created the world's first Snapchat filter company, Geofilter Studio.
Geofilter Studio exploded at an unprecedented rate of 24,000% and grew to 85 employees in the first year. They became the largest filter producer in the world, creating over 100,000 filters that accumulated 5 billion views worldwide. I then formed EveryStudio, which housed three different products: Geofilter Studio, EveryStudio AR, and EveryStudio Stickers. EveryStudio AR created augmented reality products, and EveryStudio Stickers created iOS sticker packs. Their sticker packs were viewed over 150 million times in the Apple App Store. In 2019 EveryStudio was acquired.
My sixth business, Pluto Ventures, is a venture-backed artificial intelligence company. When I'm not working on my companies, I really enjoy helping others with their business journey. Any value that I can add during someone's journey in entrepreneurship is very rewarding and I look forward to doing this on the Saber Blitz platform!
