jasonJason built an Etsy bookkeeping system in 2007 for his wife Katie, who sells handmade baby clothes on the site.

Jason believes that every Etsy seller can run a successful business on Etsy — if they have the required knowledge, tools, and perseverance.

When he’s not on Etsy, he has performed the activities of international accounting and financial reporting for a publically traded company and the treasury function at a nonprofit organization. He loves spreadsheets, good analytics, and entrepreneurship. He lives in Colorado Springs with his wife, son, and daughter.
