This is my now page, with a list of projects that I am currently working on, and an abbreviated list of things that I am thinking about.
I am a creator (curator, mostly), investor, writer, and researcher. I am currently focused on philosophy, behavioral analysis through the markets, learning design, and riding my bike as far as possible. I currently am building a company in the Fintech space (launching soon!). Here’s a link to my Spotify if you want to see my brain soundtrack and please follow my stream of consciousness on Twitter!
