I’m interested in all things SaaS, FinTech, specific applications of AI, Hardware, Climate Moonshots. Given my experience with LiveOps I am also interested in platforms for efficient hiring, management of distributed labor, many of which integrate with AI applications. I'm also excited about logistics 2.0 and unique data plays in real estate.
