I am looking to lead rounds where founders have identified a market dislocation that they're successfully attacking - whether that is for economic reasons, data reasons, or generational reasons. I have invested in popular culture (Cameo), food (Hungryroot), mobility (Spothero), recreation (Catch Co), real estate (Flyhomes/Havenly), finance (Sunbit/M1Finance) and more.
