Hey there!

 

I am Ross Kimbarovsky.

 

I am the founder and CEO at crowdspring. Since 2008, more than 220,000 experienced designers and namers on crowdspring have helped small businesses, startups, agencies, and nonprofits with high-quality custom logo design, web design, graphic design, product design, and business naming services. Crowdspring has worked with the world’s best brands, including Amazon, LG, Starbucks, Microsoft, Barilla, Philips, with many of the world’s best agencies, and tens of thousands of entrepreneurs, startups, and nonprofits.

 

I am a serial entrepreneur. Among other ventures, I founded Startup Foundry (a tech startup studio), Quickly Legal (smart legal contracts), and Respect (home care for the elderly).

 

I am an attorney. From 1995 to 2008, I litigated complex commercial and intellectual property cases in state and federal courts in the United States and at the World Intellectual Property Organization. 

 

I am an avid cyclist. I ride about 6,000 miles per year (outdoors and indoors; I live in Chicago where it’s not easy to ride year-round). My personal best is 9,000 miles in one year. To put that in perspective, the United States is 2,800 miles wide when measured horizontally from the eastern seaboard to the west coast. That year, I effectively cycled across the United States. Three times.

 

I am an immigrant from Kiev, Ukraine. I emigrated to the U.S. with my family in 1979. 

 

I am happy wearing shorts. There’s a rumor that I left my law practice at the end of 2007 to found crowdspring so that I could wear shorts to work. That rumor is true.

SEO Contrarian

I’ve been studying SEO since 2010 – long enough to know that 99.99% of SEO advice is bullshit.

SEO Contrarian

This is my effort to set the record straight on SEO and to call out bullshit when I see it…
