Best Quotes

“Engagement is the name of the game.”

“We live in a video world. That’s how everyone is consuming their content. Of all things, the church needs to be equipped to play that same game and to play it well.”

“At Boxcast, we want video streaming to be easy for everyone.”

“Maintaining that regular worship rhythm on Sundays is a wonderful thing for those who intend to be there, but just can’t for whatever reason.”

“When you aren’t streaming, nobody can see it.”

“Our pastors that use Boxcast tell us that 9 out of 10 people that come to their church watched online first.”

“Start by sharing with one camera in the back of the room. It’s great start.”


Gordon has always been a big dreamer and big thinker.

Although he failed to achieve his childhood goal of starting in center field for the Cleveland Indians, Gordon has never lost his capacity for dreaming big and working tirelessly to achieve whatever he sets his mind to.

His really big dream: To create a technology company that changes the way people communicate – through live HD video streaming.

After receiving his BS and MS in computer engineering from Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland, a 12-year-career at Rockwell Automation followed. It literally took him around the world, including a stint in Singapore. It also gave him the opportunity to manage mission-critical projects early in his career. In Gordon’s Rockwell years, he tackled tough technical problems, crafted international business deals and came up with creative marketing solutions. He also managed to be awarded a half-dozen patents.

Gordon lives with his wife Cara and their young children Quentin, Serena, and Lincoln in a renovated convent on Cleveland’s West Side. When he isn’t with his family or working, he’s most often demonstrating his competitive side whether it’s skiing, kayaking or playing ping pong.
