about me

I am an entrepenuer, software engineer, executive, writer, and photographer. I started my career as a software engineer and have always enjoyed the creative aspect of coding - bringing an entire universe to life from an empty editor window.

In my professional career, I've had the amazing opportunity to lead a startup from concept to $100M ARR, as well as co-founding two groundbreaking startups that spawned entirely new industries. Creating products with an intense focus on the customer is my passion. There are few things as satisfying as genuinely helping another human solve problem.
