Full bio

I'm relentless about practicality. I love experiments but dislike preventable mistakes - there are a lot of ways to execute a product build for tremendous success, but far more pitfalls along that road. Knowing how to compromise is a critical mark of the successful entrepreneur.

Great products result from a combination of continuous experimentation and iteratively more complex realizations of concepts as more is learned about their target market. 'Doing engineering' in a way that maximizes learning while minimizing future rework is challenging, but enourmously rewarding when done well.
