Don't Guess, Learn
I'm currently building a product for WiredScore. We're not talking about the product publicly, so that's all I'm going to say about it. To continue learning to be a better product manager, even while I'm practicing, I've been immersing myself in the best ta...

Buzzfeed Explained
I think it's safe to say that Buzzfeed remains an enigma to most people, even in the digital media industry. They do things so differently than everyone else [1] and in such a non-obvious way [2], and yet how is it that they are worth so much [3]? There's b...

Your Email Newsletter Is Not Spam, It's Just Information Overload
If you're like me you might have noticed that it's become really common for people to say something like "We hate spam too" when asking you to sign up for their mailing list. The problem isn't spam though. It's just information overload, plain and simple. I...

Buzzfeed is one of the few media organizations that is capable of truly original thought and business models for the web.

The Rise of the New Edtech
Edtech used to be this sleepy, backwards corner of the
technology industry where idealistic entrepreneurs with fantastic ideas and
even fantastic products would try to make enterprise sales to impossible educational
bureaucracies – I saw this firsthand when...

The Power of Physical Words
I went to a potluck dinner last night at Holstee , a business that describes itself as "a Brooklyn-based design studio offering sustainably made posters, cards, and frames that inspire people to live mindfully." They are known for the Holstee Manifesto , a ...

IoT Is Just Not Mobile on the Wall
I’ve started listening to a16z podcasts during meals while I’m
working. It’s incredibly interesting, obviously with an agenda but I highly
recommend listening to it nonetheless. About a month ago I listened to this fascinating conversation between Benedict ...

Why Payments Technology Is So Hard to Innovate
I think a lot about payments, even though I haven't worked in the sector for over five years. I just think it's mind-blowingly cool that this abstract concept we call money manages to work, everywhere around the world, in mutually recognizable forms, not wi...

Introduction
I have the rare ability to make engineers and business people understand each other. After starting my career as a software engineer, I have held various roles in the tech and data analytics space, including business development, management consulting, corporate development/M&A, and venture capital. I have a Computer Science degree from Brown and an MBA from Wharton, and co-founded groups for the tech and digital media alumni of each (Digital Brown and Penn Digital, respectively). I am looking for exciting startups to get involved with, particularly ones that are solving problems for businesses, larger enterprises, or that are data-driven.

I also love languages, urban planning, finance, maps, small batch food products, and riding my bike through NYC traffic.
