CEO - Conner Roach

Engineer by day, creator by night. Conner has a full time gig working as an engineer for General Motors, but loves to create in his free time! 

Conner is our Visionary. His job is to understand what type of product can make the life of a creator easier, and then figure out how to build it! 

Back in college he picked up the hobby of photography, and loves to get out and shoot when he can! Shown left is a shot of his from when he hiked Half Dome in Yosemite National park! Conner grew up with various construction jobs, so he likes to dabble with woodworking as well.

COO - DJ Conner

Amateur musician, professional investor. DJ co-founded Connective with Conner (yup, his last name is Conner's first name) and focuses on day-to-day execution and the operations of the platform.

Prior to Connective, DJ was an investment banker on Wall Street and later joined the investment community as a growth investor with Quad Partners, where he invests in education technology companies in the K-12 space.

DJ is a classicly trained guitarist and, when he's not crunching numbers, spends his time jamming with friends and recording music. He has a particular affinity for blues improvisation and can often be found in his apartment playing along to tunes by B.B King, Jimi Hendrix and Gary Clark Jr.  While Conner handles product detail, DJ brings business acumen and operational expertise to the team. A self-defined optimistic realist, DJ is dedicated to creating a platform that creates true, long-term value to our end-user.
