I advise and write on tech and business topics. As a programmer, tech co-founder, VP of Product, and management consultant, I've worn many hats across business, product, and tech.

I co-founded drop.io, a media sharing, VC-backed startup that was acquired by Facebook in 2010.

I co-founded Imagine Easy Solutions, a research and citation platform (main brand EasyBib), which was acquired by Chegg in 2016.

I am now co-founder of Solitaired and a Venture Partner at TMV.vc.
