Jared is the CEO & Co-Founder of Brief, which aims to decrease the distance between your mind and your information by organizing all of your documents for you. Sign up at abriefapp.com to stay updated on the coming release of our first product.
Prior to Brief, Jared was the Director of Consumer Product at Patch, where he and his team were responsible for the reading, writing and sharing features across all platforms: desktop and mobile web, iOS and Android. Before becoming a Product Manager, Jared was the National Aggregation Editor at Patch. Combining the best practices of Outside.in and The Huffington Post, Jared implemented a strategy that brought the 1,000+ Patch editors from doing zero aggregation to thousands of aggregated items per week. This role was a natural extension of the work Jared had done at Outside.in from 2007 to the day AOL/Patch acquired the start-up in 2011. Jared found a love for building new technology products at Outside.in where he joined as an Executive Admin and finished as the VP of Partner Relations.
In a previous life, Jared was a director, writer, and producer for the stage working at The St. Louis Muny (Associate Producer for 3 seasons), Steppenwolf Theater, The Paper Mill Playhouse, and Northlight Theater among others.
For Jared, putting on a show is a lot like releasing a new product: you’re trying to accomplish the impossible without enough time, money, or people. You never feel finished, but the show must go on. The only difference is that on the internet, the curtain never goes down.
