My post apocalyptic survival skill is...
Lots of hardware and mechanical skills but I think i'm great at coming up with a random solution for any given problem and rallying others to join me. In a post apocalyptic world you want to be with me.
My biggest challenge...
Not having enough time to take every call, work with every founder. In addition I'd like to take learnings, stories and life experiences and share them. I'm not the best writer and spend most of my time building, its been a challenge putting these together.
I want to invest in...
I love investing in technology for the future, specifically robotics, drones, VR/AR, crypto, decentralized/privacy. In addition I focus on developer tools, machine learning and artificial intelligence.
I can be most helpful at...
I love working with any entrepreneur in helping take their idea's and turn them into reality. I've been a founder numerous times myself and have seen the hard lonely path. My goal is to make it easier for founders to come up with crazy idea's and make them happen!
I think we can fix America by...
Resetting ourselves to remember we're on the same team, taking politics away from real decisions and focusing on making the world a better place. America is a land of opportunity we need to stay true to that mission and allow everyone to have that same opportunity.
My most influential mentor is...
My Dad taught me technology can be exciting from an early age. I've never looked up to anyone in the same way. He was an early engineer in Silicon Valley and my upbringing was a huge part of how my life has been.

Curious how well the companies have done? Or how many raised follow-on financing?
Some fine print: 1) These numbers include startups currently live on Wefunder if they pass their minimum target. 2) Some startups use two different laws at the same time (i.e., Regulation D and Regulation Crowdfunding).
