I’m a software product, people ops, and brand guy. I also have a ton of other skills and interests that I’ve accumulated over the years. Most recently, I used those skills as an “undercover fixer” for Startups in Silicon Valley and Europe. I left that life and moved to Portland, where I’m involved in building a number of startup projects and mentoring founders.
My goal is to use what I’ve learned from the Dark Side of Silicon Valley to build better founders – Ones that understand the relationship between People, Product, and Community Ecosystems. Portland is an ideal starting place, because there are already some “weirdos” here that believe what I believe.
It is my mission to build world-wide startup ecosystems that drive innovation without exploitation. It starts with the Founders.
