🔧 Founder, ✒ Writer, 🤑 Investor, 🐮 Cowfund Lead
I'm the cofounder of three companies that have worked to incubate and support talent while growing their businesses. I see angel investing as an extension of that work. We're moving towards a world in which creators don't work for platforms, but platforms work for creators—and likewise, we're moving towards a world where founders don't work for investors, but investors work for founders. As an investor, I'm here to work.
