I’m an entrepreneur and writer living in New York City. Right now, I’m a Venture Fellow at Notation Capital, where I research frontier tech and explore ideas in real estate, AR/VR, the gig economy and publishing.
More about me…
- In 2017, I co-founded Recess Labs, a program in NYC for technologists exploring new ideas. We created a space for makers in transition to “play” with projects that interested them, with less upfront emphasis on whether the result would be a Death Star-scale business. In the year I ran the program, we served 30 fellows across two batches — including exited founders, ex-VCs and employees of top tech companies — and partnered with Grand Central Tech for free office space. Companies and products incubated at Recess include Crypto NYC, Enrise, Nara, and Edittress.
- From summer 2016 through spring 2017, I traveled around Europe, Asia and North America. Highlights include joining an overland road trip from London to Mongolia as part of the largest team ever fielded for the Mongol Rally and writing the first draft of my novel. I paid my way by consulting on growth for VC-backed startups including Trim and Toptal.
- From 2013-2016, I was the first hire on the New Ventures team at Redfin. I got to work on many partnerships, deals and new revenue initiatives, including: our acquisition of Walk Score, writing the first business plan for Redfin Now, and leading our exploration of VR.
- I studied Ethics, Politics and Economics at Yale. While there, I learned about investing as a three-year intern with David Swensen and the team at the Yale Endowment.
