TL;DR

I am a writer, data scientist, and entreprenuer based in Los Angeles.

I just returned from six months in Australia, where I worked to boost startup and small business activity thanks to a grant from the Queensland government. I met cattle ranchers in the Outback, conservationists at the Great Barrier Reef, and technologists and entrepreneurs in Brisbane and beyond.

Before that, I was the Head of Data at Pebble, a smartwatch company. My work at Pebble was profiled in Fast Company, Forbes, Popular Science, and more. I still do consulting on data science, growth, and crowdfunding campaigns. Maybe you’ve seen this campaign that I worked on, or this one, for which I wrote the video script and lots of page copy. I run a crowdfunding resource site called Backer Tools.

I left a Physics PhD program at Cornell to take a job in Silicon Valley. I have bachelor’s degrees in Physics, Philosophy, and History of Math & Science. You can find more boring details of my resume on LinkedIn.

I stopped tweeting for a really long time but I’m back on Twitter now.

I live with my fiancé on the west side of Los Angeles, where my entire family (sister, brother, mom, dad, stepmom, sister-in-law, stepsister, stepbrother-in-law, and, as of this writing, two cats and four dogs) has serendipitously migrated over the last few years. Our family brunches are wild.
