👋 Hello, world!
I'm passionate about online education and the creator economy.
I'm a technical founder — I founded an audio startup, Awesound.
I work on Corporate Strategy for Stripe.
I've tweeted ~4,000 times. I hope this site is a more navigable summary of some things I'm doing and currently thinking about.
At the end of 2014, I quit McKinsey to create an audio platform.
Awesound has evolved into a company I'm proud of. I help story-tellers and educators make a living.
Awesound lets you securely sell audio from any website. It's used by podcast, audiobook and education companies.
It's small but profitable. Much-loved by current publishers. Growing mainly by word of mouth.
- I'm now in San Francisco, California 🇺🇸

- I love meeting new people – nearly always energizing.

- I used to be the definition of extrovert, but COVID lockdowns have made me really get to know my introverted side.
