"Aut inveniam viam aut faciam"

The Latin phrase that Hannibal allegedly said to his generals when they told him that elephants could not cross the Alps. It means "I shall either find a way or make one." Thank you Jason Shen for that quote, it is now my mantra :)

Nowhere is this saying more pertinent than in Silicon Valley, and that is one of the reasons why I moved here to work and learn from some of the brightest minds & best entrepreneurs in the world.

My goal is to start a company, but if I've learned anything from working at three extremely early stage startups, it's that there's no shame in learning as much as you can before you take the plunge.

I grew up in California after being born in New York, New York. I've loved electronic music since listening to Daft Punk as a kid, and have grown with the internet. Nowadays, I've taken up front-end web development, joined a boxing gym, finally taken up DJing and started getting serious about skiing. Ping me via one of my contact methods below, I'd love to hear from you.
