My post apocalyptic survival skill is...
I cook a mean campfire meal.
My biggest challenge...
I've never had a traditional professional background. At every step, I usually have to convince people that I have transferrable skills and am capable of handling the learning curve. It's very difficult to break people's preconceptions of the world around them and what it should look like.
I want to invest in...
Biotech, dev tools, and anything that helps to bring better computing to all of the industries that are missing software as a force multiplier.
I can be most helpful at...
I'm a great storyteller and have a knack for building and maintaining relationships, which usually translates into good insights for product, design, and operations.
I think we can fix America by...
1) An informed populace; 2) Ending the industrial prison complex; 3) Universal basic income; 4) No more guns
My most influential mentor is...
Lew Schon, an orthopedic surgeon, researcher, and my former lab director.
