The Dash

When life ends, all you get is a little dash "-" in between your dates of birth and death to symbolize your entire life on the memorial marker, urn, gravestone, and on the memorial service cards and programs. I replace the dash "-" with a QR code so you can scan it and see the memorial service slideshow to preserve memories of your loved ones.

The Founder

Our lives can change in an instant, and after our time here is over, most of us will be forgotten. I realized this as a first responder seeing life begin and end on the streets of Los Angeles for a quarter of a century. In 2017 a friend died during a training accident. At his funeral, I stared at a gravestone...at the dates of birth and death...the little dash symbol in between the dates... and I thought, "after pouring our heart and soul into this life...all we get is a little 'dash'?" I thought about adding photo memories of our lives onto an engraved QR code and replacing the dash with the QR code. In 2020, I made one for my colleague so he would always be remembered. I learned existing solutions were too complicated, so I started DASH to simplify this process. I personally serve customers with analog methods until I can raise enough capital to build an AI platform to build beautiful simple solutions for smart phone users. I pour my heart soul into every life tribute video. I do not outsource. I personally care for your loved one's memories. This is my calling and it is my mission to make sure people don't fade away. As a firefighter, I dedicated my life to rescuing people...now as the founder at DASH...I dedicate myself to rescuing people from being forgotten.
