Journey & CV —
Hello. A bit about me.
I'm fortunate to have a loving PARTNER in my life — she is the anchor, support, and guide that makes me a better man. Together we have two little girls and a mini-labradoodle, Toaster (my old friend pictured above) — I love them all beyond words. We currently live in Los Angeles, California.
I believe in PLAYING throughout life, trying and repeatedly failing at the many things that pique my interest. I'm a devoted SANBO ZEN practitioner studying under HENRY SHUKMAN.
I work as the co-founder and CEO of PROOF (creators of Moonbirds) and a partner at TRUE VENTURES.
Previously, as an entrepreneur, I founded the social news site DIGG, the intermittent fasting app ZERO, the meditation app OAK, and many other projects that have failed and no longer exist. Also, I served as the CEO of HODINKEE and a General Partner at GOOGLE VENTURES.
