Time is my biggest challenge. Knowing how fast-time goes by and how fast one must move with precision is always top of mind.
I want to invest in...
I am interested in highly-scalable projects with teams that demonstrate a strong vision and ability to execute.
I can be most helpful at...
I am a long-term learner who is often open to both mentoring and being mentored by others.
I think we can fix America by...
I spend so much time working on my projects that it is hard to even fathom that question. America is comprised of the people and it is up to those people (us) to build a future one would want to live in. Everything is bad until it's good and everything is good until it's bad. The actions we take today result in our future. Investment into education and health initiatives are important. When focusing on education we should be thinking about how to encourage wonder in our youth. Attention should be on fostering creativity and building up imagination. It will take an army of dreamers to solve the next generations problems and we should be focused on that now.
My most influential mentor is...
I have been so lucky in life to have had the opportunity to work with so many amazing mentors. From our first securities lawyer when I was in Spain starting an absinthe company, to our friends in the rum community, our customers, our investors and so many others.
