Things you should know about me

I grew up in New York and was involved in the music world from an early age, starting a record label and touring in bands with friends from high school through my 20’s.  My early hustles included pizza delivery, msp consulting, and trading soon-to-expire derivatives.  Outside of my windy road from punk rock to vertical tech I’ve become a big traveler and foodie and have invested in a few dozen teams across the vertical, saas, fintech, and marketplace spaces and am excited to back more founders as part of Tidemark.
