Current Location (March 2020) Park City, Utah
Presently, I'm building and leading an incredible team and innovative company in a hyper-competitive market (it's not as easy as it looks!). Previously, I dropped out to chase the archetypical tech dream.
I do get my fair share of email, so I am trying to set better expectations for those reaching out (and protect my inbox). If you are contacting me for one of the following reasons, please take a look at my default response before doing so.
I prefer founders whom I know personally or markets that are dissimilar to the ones I'm already in. I'm always on the side of founders and love seeing startups and ideas. I can't promise feedback, but please do email me your deck or idea!
Unfortunately, public speaking really isn't my thing and I'll decline most opportunities unless I have a personal relationship with the organizer or if it's a smaller audience of <50 attendees. I do not accept paid opportunities.
It wasn't so long ago that I was in your shoes and I remember, admire, and sorely miss the hustle and grind.
I'm not great at saying no so for my own sake, I'll say this: I'd love to help you in any way I can but unfortunately my time nowadays is severely constrained. I can't promise anything but if you'd like to chat, send me an email—I will not do calls.
I very likely do not have the bandwidth to be worth your equity as an advisor.
However — if you still feel like I could be uniquely positioned to help without significant time, please do reach out.
I am occasionally lucky enough to convince founders to let me take part of their journeys. Most of the time, I'm a quiet part of the cap table—any success is squarely due to the work and tenacity of the founders.
