While in college, I got a deal on the Season 5 Finale of ABC’s “Shark Tank” with a prototype for my first product, BZbox, a collapsible storage box. The episode airing brought influx of web traffic, media coverage, and explosive sales.
The experience was euphoric, and for me it was less about that product I pitched, but more about the process. I became obsessed with trying to figure out how to growth hack products, replicating that "Shark Tank Effect." That led me to starting Kaeyos, Inc, a product development and viral marketing agency.
In the 3 years since airing on Shark Tank with my first product, I developed a variety of consumer products, most epic fails with a few huge successes in between. Several of my products have garnered explosive sales and features on TV shows and media outlets from Project Runway and the Steve Harvey Show to Complex and TMZ.
