Get my newsletter on startup growth. It features long-form blog posts on what I see and learn as I build tech companies. I’ve written 250+ posts which have appeared on The StartupStartup Grind, The Mission and Hacker Noon.

These days, I’m building a soon-to-be-launched biotech venture based on the predictive potential of blood. Previously, I led business development at inkl and was CEO & Co-Founder at AirShr, a world-first audio recognition and interaction technology for radio. I also advise 40+ startup founders.

Excited to share learnings via my newsletter and podcast where I speak too fast. Available on Apple Podcasts, Spotify, Google Podcasts and everywhere you listen to podcasts.
