A little about me

I studied Computer Science at the University of Washington, graduating early at the age of 19. I've always been fascinated with leveraging technology for high impact and have had stints in both Microsoft and a YCombinator backed startup.

These days, I spend most of my time seeing how I can help startups, specifically in product development and user acquisition.

Investment Philosophy

I invest in strong teams working on problems across hard technology, social media, gaming, and sportsbetting, though I'm open to all verticals. I look for teams that are obsessively motivated about what they're working on and mission driven.

Over the years, I've found that the most important predictor in the success of the company is the right founders working on the right things at the right time.

As an investor, I try to help my teams in whatever ways I can, whether it is through brainstorming product features, user acquisition channels, or introductions to various companies or domain experts.

Current Interests and Projects

I've been enamored by the breakthroughs in decentralized computing platforms and the various use cases they enable in currencies, contracts, and social networks, amongst others. I've invested in several promising cryptocurrencies and platforms including Bitcoin, Ethereum, Litecoin, IOTA, and Monero. I'm also currently working on several projects in the space (to be announced soon)!
