In 2013, I was among the most written-about founders, making waves at SXSW and The Colbert Report. After growing Down Inc. to 6 million users organically and exited through acquisition by Paktor, I served as Chief Growth Officer at M17 Entertainment, which I helped expand to Hong Kong, Malaysia, Singapore, Indonesia, Japan, and the US. M17 boasts over 60m users worldwide and runs the #1 livestreaming platform in Developed Asia. I currently serve as an external Board Member for a Silicon Valley social company with over $200M in annual revenue.

After growing startups in over 15 countries in Asia and the Americas, I have distilled a tried-and-true growth methods into the SMILE framework (Success, Metric, Ideas, Layout, Experiment). I specialize in Organic Growth with a Global Mindset, covering Global Growth, Product Growth, and Marketing Growth. You can find more at!
