Website

Don MacAskill is the co-founder, CEO, and Chief Geek at SmugMug. Back in the mists of time, Don built the network that powered eBay, Hotmail, and fatbrain. He lost his mind and spent an exhilarating few years making video games, but found it again with SmugMug. With no outside investment, he bootstrapped SmugMug into a business that’s profitable and growing – but most of all, fun!
