Meet the Stray Boots Squad
We like to keep things simple, just like our tours. That's why we have a small, dynamic team of talented, quirky people. If you want to be a part of things, check out our job openings, and tell us why you'd make a great addition to the squad.
Avi Millman - Co-Founder, CEO
Since his "Eureka" moment in 2008 while touring Rome with his family, Avi has led the company as its chief visionary and tour creator. Avi complements his diverse business experience (organic tonic water startup, supply chain management, Caribbean ad sales), with a Princeton history degree, passion for urban travel, and expert level of nerdiness.
Scott Knackmuhs - Co-Founder, Operations
If the customer is king, then Scott presided over his coronation. Since helping to conceptualize and launch Stray Boots's first tours in 2009, Scott's mission has been to make the customer experience as good as it can be from gameplay to phone support. Before his boots began to stray, Scott was a supply chain analyst at national retailer Steve & Barry's, and a UPenn frisbee star moonlighting as a history major.
Jason Wong - Backend Development
Jason started off as a technology consultant in the financial services industry. Prior to joining Stray Boots, he spent some time working with large scale data in retail analytics. Jason has a degree in Computer Science from the University of Waterloo, tries very hard to play the guitar and wins at foosball.
Marshal Gaddis - Finance and Operations
Marshal makes sure the T's are crossed and I's dotted at Stray Boots. Using ninja-level number crunching skills, he ensures the team has accurate views of the past and intelligent expectations for the future. Marshal graduated from the University of Texas at Austin with degrees in Finance and Plan II Liberal Arts, is the only person in the world indifferent toward cats, and communicates primarily in mixed metaphor and cryptic simile.
Erik Nelson - Android Development
Erik joined the team as our dedicated Android wizard, rebelling against his early days of iPhone evangelism. He graduated from Boston University in 2011 with a degree in Computer Engineering, a minor in Economics, and a surprising indifference to the "Bahston Sawks". After a two-year stint on a trading desk at Barclays Capital, he returned to his roots doing what he loves: building great technology.
Sarah Thompson - Marketing Director
Originally from Cambridge, England, Sarah has been residing in Brooklyn for the past 6 years (although her accent still remains intact). Sarah has over 10 years of marketing experience, most recently at the NYC startup Kaptur, a photo technology company that successfully gained over one million customers and was acquired by AHAlife. Outside of Stray Boots, you can find Sarah hustling on a pool table (she's quite the shark), snowboarding (or falling) on the slopes, and traveling the world (she's aiming for 40 countries by the end of 2015).
