Serial Entrepreneur, Investor, and Advisor in San Francisco, CA
I started my first tech company in 1996 and from there went on to build, invest in, and advise a long list of ventures in this space.
In the 1990's and early 2000's I founded a nationwide dial up internet service provider, a full service internet marketing company, an SEO firm, and became a technology partner at a hedge fund managing over $1B in assets.
In the mid 2000's I founded a private tech incubator in California which went on to produce a small number of great startups in the web and mobile spaces.
In the mid 2000's I built several ecommerce companies, founded or co-founded several consumer internet companies, and started investing in and advising startups.
From 2010-2012 I was research assistant to Howard Rheingold of Stanford University in the writing of NetSmart: How to Thrive Online. A terrific book with healthy perspectives on technology.
I was also an initial investor and activist for FundersClub, the first crowd based Venture Capital firm. See more at FundersClub.com.
These days I continue to work with a portfolio of great companies and spend my free time on art, reading, the outdoors, and endurance sports.
