Welcome.
Here is a little more about me.

I work as a partner at TRUE VENTURES, a venture capital firm that invests in early-stage technology startups. At True, I focus on blockchain (NFTs, cryptocurrency, DeFi), consumer internet, and health/wellness.

I also host the PROOF and MODERN FINANCE podcasts.

 

PROOF is your podcast for in-depth NFT coverage. Topics include generative art, utility NFTs, AI art, metaverse, and NFT artist interviews, both up-and-coming and industry icons.

 

On Modern Finance, we explore cryptocurrency, decentralized finance, Web3, traditional finance hacks, and more.

 

If you'd like to keep up with my favorite cryptocurrency/NFT projects, consider subscribing to my NEWSLETTER. 

Previously, as an entrepreneur, I founded the social news site DIGG, the intermittent fasting app ZERO, and the meditation app OAK. I was also 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 a mini-labradoodle. I love them all beyond words.

 

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


You can also find me on INSTAGRAM and TWITTER.
