In addition to creating & running companies, I sometimes invest in and advise other peoples’. I typically get involved in the earliest stages, helping the founders aim their energy in the right direction.
There’s some tension around the fact that as an entrepreneur, I publicly decry the ideal of selling a company, while as an investor I’m proud to have supported companies like Tumblr, Bleacher Report, and MakerBot, whose combined sales account for the majority of my net worth.
In addition to consumer tech, I’ve gotten involved in several food companies. I’m a partner in Mast Brothers Chocolate, the restaurant Egg, and HowGood, a company that rates grocery quality. My dad is a chef, btw.
I am not currently seeking new investments and unfortunately cannot reply to incoming pitches.
