About The Hub Guide
Founded by myself and two friends in 2008, The Hub Guide was a social platform dedicated to aggregating and promoting the local music and arts scene in Hattiesburg, Mississippi — home of the University of Southern Mississippi and also known as the “Hub City”. We built the platform to connect students not just with each other but with real local artists finding their audiences every night out on the town.
For two years, THG operated as a complete city directory for students who needed a place to dine, listen to good music or just pay the cheapest cover.
MY WORK: FOUNDER, CTO, DEVELOPER
As a founder, my role carried many responsibilities, but the largest was the day-to-day creation of technology that served our users best. Founding the site was a great and fun experience for me while also giving me the chance to learn a lot about entrepreneurship.
