David Putnam, co-founder
David’s passion for home improvement started two decades ago with his first residential investment. That initial condo parlayed into multifamily dwellings, single family homes, and the remodeling (still a green work-in-progress) of his own home in Northern California. The waste produced by home and rental improvement efforts, and a desire to leave the planet better off for his two kids, led David to share eco-friendly remodeling alternatives with other homeowners. His passion for internet advertising, social networking, and sales has been fed by various leadership positions at Microsoft, Siemens and Yahoo! David is also a member of the Green committee for the Custom Electronic Design & Installation Association (CEDIA).
Aaron Zitzer, co-founder
Aaron takes a hands-on approach to most of his remodeling projects. Most recently, he rebuilt his kitchen from scratch (at the start of the ‘building’, all you could see was dirt, foundation, wall studs and roof). Aaron has bought and sold real estate as a Realtor in California and has held senior marketing roles with consumer and technology companies including Tivo, LinkedIn, Siemens and others.
