Founder with 4 exits & $70M+ raised from Sequoia, Lightspeed, Floodgate, MDV, SVB, 500 startups. Ex-CEO @ VarageSale (acquired: VerticalScope) and Co-founder @ BandPage (acquired: YouTube). Sold my first company @ 16 years old.
Active angel investor (Union Capital) + startup advisor. Expert in all things marketplaces, B2C / B2-SMB, growth marketing, VC fundraising, scaling your team+culture from 10 to 75 employees and board management.
Success isn't a straight line - My hardest day was laying off 30 people in one day.
I LOVE to help startup founders + mgmt teams. Want tactical advice from the trenches + unfilitered real talk? Hit me up.
My mantras - Never stop learning & aspire to be the dumbest person in every room.
