Summary

Obessed with how we make work -- the thing we do with more waking hours than any other -- better.

To do that, I prioritize job one: husband (2007 - Present) and father (2008 - Present, promoted to father of two in 2011).

I've tried writing my LinkedIn to be honest to both my successes and the other stuff -- so you can understand me a little bit better than if I only showed the camera my good side. If that means you'd rather not work with me, I'm grateful we learned that now. (The only important thing that hit the cutting room floor is the long list of side projects half started, started and abandoned, or started only in my imagination.)

It's only in the last few years that I realized I wanted to devote myself to making work better. Before that, I had a messy career (in non-profit, professional services, city government, big media, video games, academia, day-zero startup, investing), where that one thread kept recurring.

In 2013, Bloomberg L.P. gave me the opportunity to turn my obsession with the future of work into my job when we created Bloomberg Beta. I believe the fastest way to make change is to build extraordinary technology companies (and, these days, machine intelligence companies in particular).

To keep learning, I teach a course in media at Berkeley's Haas School of Business, and serve on the boards of two non-profits (the Center for Investigative Reporting and CodeNow).

And last: I type 88 wpm. I play Werewolf. Never at the same time. Yet.
