I am a(n):

Dromomaniac, Bibliophile and FreeCell Addict on a perpetual quest for knowledge (or the next best happy hour deal, whichever comes first)

If you are an entrepreneur, why?

I can stay up all night and can nap anywhere.

My favorite startups:

Froomz, BranchOut, HealthTap, fitmob

What's most frustrating and rewarding about entrepreneurship/innovation?

Most frustrating - filtering, sorting, and organizing seemingly unrelated events and information to identify potential challenges and roadblocks

Most rewarding - connecting the dots between seemingly unrelated events and information to discover opportunities for microscopic advantage
