Hi! My motto is think different and build things. I coded my first web software in the mid-90s and had my first successful exit in 1998. I’ve spent my entire career building software products, for my startups and others, including a stint as one of the first Lead Systems Engineers at Zynga- the fastest-growing Silicon Valley darling of its time. As an investor, I led an angel investment in Mayvenn (https://www.crunchbase.com/organization/mayvenn), which has gone on to raise $76M from top-tier VCs like a16z.

More recently I built and growth-hacked an iOS video editing app to 250K+ downloads and raised $230K+ from 600+ investors in a pioneering pre-ICO crowdfunding campaign (https://startengine.com/zen).

My goal is to help tech entrepreneurs scale faster and smarter than I did by listening hard and sharing hard-won lessons. I'm a multiplier effect for your strategic thinking and creative problem-solving.

I understand the challenges of being a solo entrepreneur or working closely with co-founders. It's likely that I've faced similar obstacles to the ones you're currently experiencing, whether it's validating your idea or acquiring your first 100K users. If I haven't, I'll let you know. I won't waste your time or mine.

I encourage you to try before you buy. Let's start with a free introductory 10-15 minute call to determine if we're a good fit.
