It's been a hell of a journey. I've worked at the world's hottest tech company when it was cold (Apple) and the coldest tech company when it was hot (aol). I have founded five startups, pivoted a bunch and exited three times.
I am currently CEO of a very cool edtech startup that was a rocketship, then a roller-coaster and is now hitting singles and doubles (3 metaphors?). Oh, and I also survived cancer.
I have jumped on the AI bandwagon and am founder of Machine&Partners, a lab for Generative AI product development.
I'm also helping the next generation of founders, leaders, and dreamers to navigate (or avoid altogether) the shark infested waters of Silicon Valley.
I think the time is right to fund and build companies with big ambitions but with less capital, that deliver more value to their founders and employees.
