How I like to work with people As a Cofounder

Extensive experience with startups, including a broad network of entrepreneurs and investors. I can think about an idea critically, but at times, suspend disbelief. I like working on brand new markets.

As an Advisor

I try to provide structure for thinking about a problem. I use my prior experiences as guides. My style is to be supportive, but aim to offer constructive criticism. I selectively choose who I advise and intend to be available for monthly in person meetings and more frequent email/phone exchanges.
