How I like to work with people
As an Advisor

Because of my background, I am very execution focused. The most important thing for any startup is to create an actual product. Without that, nothing else matters.

So expect a deep dive on most aspects, lots of discussion and a singular drive to ensure that you get things done.

Yeah, vague platitudes, but it'll make more sense once I have a chance to sit down and talk about specifics.
