Building TripAdvisor for locals

It was never supposed to be a business. Reviewing 144 restaurants, cafes and wineries gave me something to do when I took a year off to enjoy the first year of my son's life in 2010.

As it turns out, people liked it... a lot. I setup and trained a bunch of chefs on how to use Twitter. By 2012 Tweet2eat had its moment in the sun to become the 3rd most visited Hawke's Bay site and I learned firsthand how Google treated new content on the Internet.

Come out for dinner with me, I still get amazing service.
