I am waiting for someone to hire me for my sandwich-focused enthusiasm.

Until then, I am supporting companies improving the food system. I do this by investing, giving (mostly) unsolicited advice, and some other things.

On an extracurricular basis I co-lead YNG Ventures (early-stage investing group!) and am on the board of the Unfunded List (helping overlooked nonprofits!)


I ran The Compass Fellowship (now SI360), helped to build YNG+ at Young Presidents' Organization, and worked on a project at Oscar Health Insurance.

I studied chairs for a while and also co-founded + co-cooked for a catering business for five years.

I appeared on a wine + philanthropy-themed podcast one time.

We will have to meet virtually or in-person for me to divulge more.
