about Justin Halloran
individual

I am the co-founder of Deily. I am fortunate to have worked with amazing teams early in the development of eBay, HomeAway, RetailMeNot, and Portico. I owe my interest in religion to my parents. My mother is the daughter of a Methodist minister and My father studied at a Catholic seminary. I graduated from Georgetown University's School of Foreign Service where I completed coursework in biblical literature and Buddhism. I am so thrilled to be a part of the Deily community.
