Now

These are the things I am doing now. Idea inspired by Zach Ware, who was inspired by Derek Sivers.

  • Exploring start-up ideas that I am interested in, mainly focused on how to better connect and organize people in mutually beneficial and positive-sum ways. Two ideas have the majority of my attention at the moment, and I am running experiments with each:
    • Help "intellectual creators" turn their fans into collaborators, ultimately amplifying the work of the creator and providing a more intimate relationship for the fan
    • Facilitate more useful connections and foster a spirit of positive-sum collaboration amongst people
  • Participating in the On Deck program in hopes of meeting new, interesting people and having a (small) bit of structure as I iterate through my ideas.
  • Moving to San Francisco from South Florida (contrarian move) and hoping to find some like-minded young people. After being largely nomadic for two years and primarily in South Florida during COVID, I am looking forward to being in SF for a few months with friends.
  • Tweeting. Trying to expand my presence here to meet new people (a common thread).
  • Working out and playing sports (pickleball has been my sport of choice during COVID, considering my golf swing is in shambles).
