Course: The crash course guide to starting up

I’ve done a little bit of everything, but my best work usually involves some combination of product management, building teams, writing, and making relationships.
A short resume of my activities:

• currently building Canvas at Occipital, bringing 3D to all levels of home improvement (3D, AR/VR, operations, mobile, home services)

• currently writing on Medium, sharing ideas on product, company building, and the occasional satire or fiction

• co-founded Fetchnotes, leading the company from an idea in a dorm room to an acquisition in 2015 (mobile, productivity, collaboration)

• joined Benzinga as one of its first employees, taking over business development, the Zing Talk Podcast, and being a general utility player on the team (media and journalism, fintech)
