Hey guys. Big Gulps, eh? All right! (Pause) Welp, seeya later!
That was a Dumb and Dumber reference. If you got it, we have a 73% higher chance of being friends. This was also my high school yearbook quote 🤷🏻♀️
Me, the work edition: I’m an Operating Partner at Accomplice; founder/GP of Yubari, an angel fund; and co-founder of a stealth Enneagram app that's in beta. I'm formerly a startup person (at Ovuline and Abine) and a lawyer. I invest in things that feel like they’re out of sci-fi and video games, like augmented/virtual reality and AI.
Me, the personal edition: I buy more books than I can read. If I could make just one food calorie-free for life, it’d be brownie sundaes. Cosplay, Halloween, and theme parties are my favorite things. I have a tattoo of the Triforce from the Legend of Zelda. I can do a lot of pull-ups. I crush sci-fi books, shows, and movies. Poor grammar makes me unhappy. I wish I could take a nap every day. I like electronic music, the First Amendment, and anti-humor. I have two fat adopted cats. My core personal values are authenticity, autonomy, and justice.
