Hello

Hello

I serve as the CEO of Italic and help my SO Kati with Not Pot. I'm easy to reach but please be patient if I don't respond immediately — I'm trying my best! 🙇🏻‍♂️

📍

Location (Last Updated March 2020) Park City, Utah

Work

Presently, I'm lucky to be leading an incredible team in a hyper-competitive market. Previously, I dropped out to chase the archetypical tech dream.

Contact

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.

Investing

I prefer founders whom I know personally or markets that are dissimilar to the ones I'm already in. I can't promise feedback, but please do email me your deck or idea!

📌

Disclosure: I am not an active investor and will not be actively involved in your company.

Speaking

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.

Students

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.

Advising

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.

Investing

I am occasionally lucky to be invited to join a founder on their journey—I'm a silent, tiny part of the cap table and I am not an active investor. Any success is squarely due to the work and tenacity of the founders.
