Builders of the world, unite!

About most things I have strong views weakly held.

But about certain things I have strong views strongly held.

Some strong views strongly held:

  • More smart people should be building more new things.

  • Most smart people are in a default career path laid for them by the expectations of their parents.

  • Finance, consulting, and law have drained a generation of talent from more productive uses — like building new things.

  • Most smart people could use a bit more independent-mindedness.

  • We can make a bigger difference in the world than we think.

Let’s build together.

Monthly updates

I’ve been building companies for 15 years, starting with Thumbtack (local services) and now Scaled (startup recruiting) and GroomBuggy (dog grooming). I’m a builder and operator at heart. I’m motivated to get jobs for people as tech accelerates. This monthly newsletter chronicles my birds-eye view on the workforce and my journey in creating jobs for the future.
