How does this work?

Relentlessly curious. I work both sides of the table - investing and operational. I focus my energy on building quality experiences and scaling businesses. Always excited to work with motivated people who are driven, energetic, and open-minded. Enjoy building and thinking about product, growth, customer acquisition, and go-to-market. Motivated by an entrepreneurial atmosphere coupled with successful collaboration.
