Who are we? Well, some of us aren't even football fans (no kidding.) When we talk about being passionate, we're talking about our commitment - like in-the-soul commitment - to giving NFL fans who wish they could be the General Manager of a real NFL team the closest possible experience.
Chris' background is in technology and services sales (check out his LinkedIn page.) He's also an unapologetic NFL nut, who's particularly fascinated by how successful teams are built. To him, the real stars in the NFL are the General Managers, scouts, and other personnel executives. In 1996, he created the game that is now iGMTM. He ran a virtual NFL team on an Excel spreadsheet for 15 years for no other reason than to see how he could do as an NFL General Manager.
A successful veteran entrepreneur with a background in technology, business planning, management, and fundraising, Clint brings invaluable experience and expertise to PowerHouse. He keeps the company focused on what will make us successful as a business. He led the first major re-write of our business plan, and his network of business contacts is a vital resource for our company. Check out his LinkedIn page.

Here's Dave on LinkedIn.
Michael is an online marketing expert currently working as Campaign Strategist at Search Smart Marketing. His expertise in SEO (search engine optimization) has helped thousands of NFL fans find us on the web. Michael also worked for the New York Jets early in his career, but he's otherwise a great guy. Here he is on LinkedIn.
Jason runs NinerCapHell.com, a popular site for San Francisco 49ers fans. He is an obsessive follower of NFL Contracts and the Salary Cap, and we're very lucky to have him as a contributor to PowerHouse. Jason is very quick to credit another Jason, Jason Fitzgerald of OverTheCap.com, a regular source of excellent information.
