What I'm doing now

I live in Oakland, in the San Francisco Bay Area. Although I am also frequently in Chicago, San Diego, and parts of Alaska.

A couple months ago I quit my job and took some time off to re-evaluate what I care about and how best to use the most productive years of my life.

Before that I spent just under two years working as VP of Growth at Knowi, a SAAS analytics/business intelligence startup.

My priorities and goals:

  • Thinking carefully about where I want to be putting my skills and energy.
  • Finding smart, clever, motivated people to work with.
  • Building my scientific startup growth podcast SciGrowth.
  • Doing bespoke growth consulting for a small number of startups.
  • Getting better at sleep.
  • Spending time with my Boston Terrier pup Octavian.

My habits:

Things that I think are great

  • Coffee
  • Dogs
  • Live music
  • Blockchain
  • VR/AR
  • Data & Analytics
  • Journaling
  • Sleep that is actually restful

Things that I think are a stupid waste of time

  • Arguing with people
  • Clubhouse
  • Most movies
  • Reading (or watching) the news
  • Most things that require scrolling
  • Most of what marketers and PR people do day-to-day

This is a Now Page and I will continue to update it as my life and priorities change.
