About

JRJCVoH1_400x400It was founded in 2016 by me, Web Smith. I am currently the Head of Partnerships at Cotton Bureau where I establish commerce relationships with creators and media organizations like VaynerMedia and MKBHD. I have a wife, Lindsey, and two great kids in Alexis and Adriana. I am the fourth best athlete in my house.

Formerly, I led eCommerce operations for Gear Patrol. There, I worked to bridge media and commerce with partnerships formed with the likes of top men’s brands. I was also responsible for launching the ‘Patrol’ vertical brand for the men’s lifestyle site. That was cool.

Prior to Gear Patrol, I failed a few times. Ouch. And before that, I was the founding Chief Marketing Officer of a startup called Mizzen+Main. There, I worked extensively to find a founder-product-market fit, voice, and cost-effective approach to establishing Mizzen+Main in a competitive space to include Ministry, Theory, and others. I got my start in eCommerce by handling digital marketing for Rogue. There I learned from a few of the best in the business.

I’ve been featured in the New York Times, Fast Company, Pando Daily, Wall Street Journal, and Esquire. I’ve written on retail for Forbes, TechCrunch, and the Wall Street Journal. I’ve consulted over a dozen digitally native vertical brands (DNVB’s) and a handful of publicly-traded retailers.
