This is a ‘now’ page, inspired by Derek Sivers. It should give you (and me!) the most straight forward glimpse into what is most important to me right now. I updated this page on September 26th, 2022 from White Bear Lake, MN.

Enjoying Fall with the family

I have lived in a lot of other beautiful places, but none have the fullness of all four seasons as Minnesota. Fall has arrived and the flannel is on. Catch me outside on a walking meeting, or playing with the boys in the yard while we enjoy a fire.

Looking for the right people to bring in to Revelry

Revelry provides custom software services, operates a venture studio where we spin out companies we build ourselves, and invests in startups at the earliest stage. I am actively hunting for a few very specific roles to help us grow:

  • A couple SDRs to build up the sales team
  • Founder In Residence candidates to evaluate opportunities and then take on a co-founder and CEO role in one of our spinout companies

If you or someone you know would be a great fit, please let me know!

Mentoring/Advising Founders

I hold space for mentoring and advising founders of early-stage startups through Techstars, 500 Startups, and ADPList. Nothing feeds me more than hopping on a call with a founder to talk through their hopes and fears and what might unblock the next stage in their growth.

Experimenting and Learning

I constantly test new products and explore new ideas. Sometimes that makes me an early adopter to things that become mainstream. Often it means I get to learn from failure exponentially faster than 90%+ of folks. Either way, I win. So I keep dancing on the fringe. Some of the things I am exploring now:

  • redacted – E2EE chat spaces for communities of interest
  • HumansAnon – Anonymous Audio Spaces for Mental Health
  • Internal Family Systems – Self Leadership + Parts Work
  • stealth – share and respond to specific requests for help
