I work at inkl and grow the world’s best news service.

I started my first venture aged 10 and I write here each week about what I learn from building businesses. My posts feature on The Mission, Startup Grind and Dent. The topics range from product design and distribution to fundraising and people.

I also talk too fast on this podcast and send out a weekly newsletter. You should sign up too, it’s pretty good.
