How I like to work with people As a Cofounder

I\'ve done everything early stage, from building a team, building multiple products to significant product-market fit, fundraising from top angels. I\'ve got deep experience in local, ecommerce, social (especially fb platform with viral apps), engagement, and viral growth.

As an Advisor

My value add lies in finding product-market fit & optimizing engagement and growth. I like to setup monthly checkins with teams to first identify 1-3 priorities and work towards accomplishing those priorities as quickly as possible.
