Colin Drane, SpotCrime: Serial entrepreneur who founded the Baltimore based SpotCrime in 2007, Colin Drane now runs the most visited public crime map in the US reaching over 5 million people monthly. After a brief stint in the infomercial industry, Colin took an interest in crime mapping because of Baltimore’s distinction of being one of the most violent cities in the US. Starting with CrimeBaltimore.com, Colin then decided to map the entire US and created the SpotCrime brand helping to push government transparency by encouraging police departments around the country to openly release their crime data.

By the late 1990s, he was developing web applications for Tower Records that combined the call center interface with inventory and fulfillment. Since then, Shea has worked as a developer for several companies – building and implementing various commerce solutions, content management systems, and lead tracking programs.
