I am guided by intellectual curiosity, an entrepreneurial spirit, and a desire to change broken systems.
I live in San Francisco. I grew up in Denver.
I am a graduate of the Stanford Graduate School of Business and Claremont McKenna College.
I have worked: in construction, at a golf course, for a foreign policy think-tank, for a European lobbying group, for a strategy consulting firm, for a water clean-tech startup, for a micro-satellite startup, and for multiple health food companies.
l have run a non-profit. (It is hard.)
I value sports and fitness. I run, bike, and swim (= triathlons). I play basketball but live in constant fear of the inevitable pickup game injury that befalls all white men circa the age of 30. I still have dreams about lacrosse, which I played for a decade.
I like to eat food. Mostly plants (on a good day). And not too much. But I also like beer.
I value the environment. I need to camp more.
I have officiated a wedding and changed one diaper (for a baby). I have occasional zombie nightmares.
I enjoy writing. I hope you enjoy reading it. I also write for http://ediblestartups.com/
