I’m an entrepreneur and writer living in New York City. Right now, I’m working on Branch, a startup that makes it easy for companies to furnish office space.
More about me…
- In 2018, I was a Venture Fellow at Notation Capital, where I researched frontier tech and explored ideas in real estate, AR/VR, the gig economy and publishing.
- 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 less upfront emphasis on whether the result would be a venture-scale business. In the year I ran the program, we partnered with Grand Central Tech to serve 30 fellows across two batches. Products incubated at Recess include Crypto NYC, Vowel, and Main Street, and have raised $10M+ of venture funding to date.
- From summer 2016 through spring 2017, I traveled around Europe, Asia and North America. Highlights include joining a 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. While traveling, I consulted for startups including Trim, Betaworks and Toptal.
- From 2013-2016, I was a founding member of the New Ventures team at Redfin. I worked on partnerships, corp dev and starting new businesses, 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.
