A graduate of Truman State University with a master’s degree from Boston University, and an MBA from Washington University, Doug started his career as a producer at Disney Interactive and Disney Online. After moving back to St. Louis, Doug worked at Pulitzer Technologies before leaving to found UPICKEM in 2001.
Doug is a programmer by trade, but a golfer at heart. He and his wife, Diane, have four children. If he’s not on his laptop, he’s shuttling kids from one activity to the next, all the while dreaming of lowering his handicap.
