How I like to work with people
As an Advisor

My style sits between laid back 'high-level' advice to providing specific and broad strategic and financial advice as well as offering unique perspectives as a new dad and a 'normal' as it relates to UX/ UI, design and prioritizing development roadmap.
I have many relationships that span many industries and geographies.

Denim would be a great entrepreneur because of his ability to see a market problem and solve it. His vision, focus and drive are well balanc ... ed with his open mindedness and ability to be receptive to critique. Denim also has the underlying business experience and ability to gather and execute on market intelligence that few others have. A skill he learned previously in his senior investment banking career and board positions he is currently involved in. Lastly Denim has an abundance of passion and dreams of large but attainable goals. This is wonderful motivation for success.
