How I like to work with people As a Cofounder

Deep and broad experience in working with engineers and creatives to craft user-responsive tools and services.

As an Advisor

I believe in business plans. I believe they focus the company and ease day to day decision-making. I also believe in frequent zero-based plan reviews, as the Internet is the most fluid business environment ever. The early stages of any company are the most exciting and attractive to me. It's where I can deliver the most value.
