Contact

I don't enjoy calls and prefer email. To set expectations for those reaching out, please read my default response before reaching out.

Investing

I'm not an active angel and will not be hands-on. I prefer founders whom I know personally.

Advising

I most likely do not have the bandwidth to be worth equity in your company.

Speaking

I don't enjoy public speaking and I'll decline unless it benefits Italic. I do not accept paid opportunities.

Students

I don't have much time and most likely will not respond. It wasn't long ago that I was in your shoes. I fondly remember and respect the hustle, and wish you all the best.
