Welcome. Here is a little more about me.

 

I love investing in and working with great people. Today, I do this as a Partner at TRUE VENTURES. I also design and build products. Lately, I created the intermittent fasting app, ZERO, and the meditation app, OAK.

I host a podcast called the KEVIN ROSE SHOW where I explore how to reach peak personal and professional performance while living a minimal and balanced life. There I interview authors, technologists, scientists, meditators, self-experimenters, and productivity hackers to discover insights that can improve your life.

 

Previously, I founded the social news site DIGG, and was a General Partner at GOOGLE VENTURES, where I invested in companies like RIPPLE, BLUE BOTTLEMEDIUM, and NEXTDOOR. Prior to that, I began my investing career as an Angel investor in Twitter, Facebook, and Square.
 

I have a wonderful PARTNER in life. Together we have two little girls and mini-labradoodle. I love them all beyond words.

 

I believe in PLAYING THROUGHOUT LIFE, trying and failing over and over at the many things that pique my interest.

 

I have a once-a-month NEWSLETTER that covers my favorite articles and odd obsessions.

You can also find me on INSTAGRAM, TWITTER, and FACEBOOK.
