Hey there. I'm Braden.
I was lucky enough to marry my life-long sweetheart on July 30th, 2022. I'm father to one beautiful boy, with another on the way.
I graduated from Timpanogos High School in 2010, where I was named Utah's all-state midfield lacrosse MVP after our team took the state championship. I'm an exercise and fitness enthusiast and trail marathon runner.
I earned a 4-year degree in communications at Brigham Young University, where I also wrote for the school paper.
I gained my first professional experience disrupting higher-ed career services at a Boston-based startup called uConnect. After graduation I remained in tech but gravitated into sales at InsideSales.com.
I spent three years as a small business payments consultant at Visa. In February 2022, I took leadership of the sales development strategy for Cybersource, a Visa Solution. As its first-ever global sales development manager, I led SDRs in North America and Europe to generate pipeline for Visa's small business, partner and enterprise sellers.
In May 2023, I departed Visa to lead sales development at Artifact, a startup committed to revolutionizing customer feedback insights for product organizations. Our team is growing rapidly and always looking for bright minds to make us better.
My favorite thing to do is spend time in nature with my wife and son. I've owned nearly every Nintendo, PlayStation and XBOX console ever made and enjoy watching high-level competitive gaming almost as much playing.
