Think Jeff is awesome?
Vouch for them.

Michael Panesis
They're my advisor  •  Executive Director, Center for Entrepreneurship, California Lutheran University.
Jeff is a really clever guy who is a pro at finding a compelling value proposition. As his advisor, I like that he carefully considers advic ... e and is respectful of my time.
Phaedrus Raznikov
They're my school  •  Support Engineer, Administrative Software Applications, Inc.. Previously Founder, Farm Plus. University of California, Santa Barbara grad.
Jeff advised me and my teammates when we were starting an ambitious urban farming project in early 2014. No one on the team really had any e ... xperience in the space, and we were all new to entrepreneurship. Jeff's guidance focused and coordinated our scatterbrained enthusiasm into a direct action plan. I'm happy to say that Jeff is a critical component in the foundation of my entrepreneurial knowledge and experience.
Jonathan DeLong
They're my advisor  •  Equity Partner / Advisor / Mentor, Various Companies and CEO, DeLongVision, Inc.. University of California, Santa Barbara grad.
Jeff is a passionate domain expert in his field. He is also engaged in his community as both a resource for others and a curious learner. ... It is an excellent balance that positions him well for growth and success as a leader.
Aladrian "Dro" Goods
We worked together  •  Festival Operations Coordinator, RKD Music & Talent Management and Advisor, Next Generation Summit.
Jeff is a well to do guy. His passion and commitment to his projects is contagious. As a leader he is careful in creating a collaborative sp ... ace where all thoughts are welcomed and there is no such thing as bad ideas. I know Jeff to be tenacious in his efforts. There is only one guy I know who could get in touch with Russell Simmons not once, but twice in a weekend & it's him. Jeff will be a great entrepreneur because he's passion driven, strong willed, and committed to greatness.

Aladrian "Dro" Goods
We worked together  •  Festival Operations Coordinator, RKD Music & Talent Management and Advisor, Next Generation Summit.
Aladrian is a natural leader, capable of organizing groups big and small. She is youth culture, understands people and their motivations. I' ... ve worked with her as an advisor and a co-worker and am looking forward to loving everything she creates in the future.

Alex Russell
They're my school  •  Founder & CTO Asta Fluidic Technologies Previously Independent Biotechnology Consultant @ Medela, Graduate Student @ UC Santa Barbara
Alex and I went to UCSB together. He won the same startup competition I did the year after we won, looking to take an incredible technology ... to market to save babies lives. Doesn't get much better than that. Alex has always struck me as a clear visioned and level headed individual. I think he would be an asset to anyone's founding team.

Ben Williamson
They're my friends  •  Co Founder, Yoshirt Inc. Previously Senior Software Engineer, Apple.
Ben is an amazing advisor, entrepreneur and connector. He is always available to give advice about the right way to motivate yourself and yo ... ur cofounders. He's got an incredible technical background that speaks for itself. Ben is a great person to know on many fronts.
