About Us

John Davis and Marshall Glenn founded Nautical Monkey in 2010 while sitting on a boat in the beautiful waters of Lake Travis in Austin, TX. After spending months looking for an online system that would allow them to more easily schedule and maintain a boat they were sharing, and after experiencing the frustration of a sharing relationship based on text messaging, emails, and missed phone calls, they decided to take the plunge and create Nautical Monkey.


The Principals/Founders
John Davis

From a very humble start, LegalSpan, Inc. became one of the largest providers of online legal education in the US and later expanded into accounting, banking and general business education. After selling LegalSpan late in 2008, John collaborated with various start ups and now heads up the dynamic Nautical Monkey team.
