You Should Know About Me

Key Strengths

Business planning • Business Strategy • Product Development • Startups • Strategy Development

Key Accomplishments

I have built or prototyped 4 different smartphone applications in the past 2 years. I previously worked in Dotcom 1.0 doing corporate strategy and product management, helping one of those companies go public (INSW). I've advised or been hands-on with numerous startups and have a professional network to match. I currently chair an industry taskforce with the IEEE on augmented reality and have significant experience with Non-Technical Product Mgmt, BizDev, Legal, Political, general sales, and small team leadership. Am passionate about user-centered intelligent products in interesting verticals like Bitcoin & AR.

How I like to work with people As a Cofounder

I currently have a partial team with an MVP and we're currently conducting market-fit tests. I have particularly strong experience building business models, complete product management, and fundraising. I also am very good at recruiting, team balancing, team management, and resource management. I am also just a good member of a team - collaborative & easy to work with, competent, and resourceful with strong direction and initiative.

As an Advisor

I am very hands on and care about my advised companies. My goal is to improve whatever category I'm assisting with, not own the process and insert my own DNA. I am a great team player and consider the team environment first above all else. Companies often ask me to take larger roles, which I will consider on a very selective case-by-case basis - after weighing the team dynamics, product potential, my potential to elevate the product or team to the next levels, and lastly compensation. I have studied & worked abroad, and have studied many languages, so I am actually comfortable with many cultures, accents, work styles, and personalities.

Andy Bauch
We worked together  •  Founder, SocialScrub. Previously CTO, Cloud Cover Music. USC and Lehigh grad. Former ice cream truck magnate.
Chris is one of the brightest people I've met in the LA Tech scene since I stumbled into it this year. He's not a programmer but is incredib ... ly tech savvy and has an innate understanding of how programs work and how to build great products. On the business side he's a wealth of knowledge and he has advised me several times on startup issues. I think he would make an incredible addition to founderdating.

Auren Hoffman
Fmr CEO, LiveRamp (sold for $310 million). Fmr Board: BrightRoll.
Auren has been in the startup world for a long time - seen a lot of deals, built companies, sold them, and has picked good companies to inve ... st in. (Go Brightroll!) Well connected goes without saying. I have not had the pleasure of working directly with him on any companies, but my friends have.
