I am living and working in Austin, TX and on my giant money pit small ranch 45 min outside of town.

I took time off this year to focus on my internal compass and to learn about topics I’ve long found interesting, explore some projects and help people doing interesting things.

I heard this podcast at the right time and it informed how I handled the year.

This is what I’m doing now:
in order of time spent, not necessarily priority

  • Working on a new company to tackle the systemic inefficiencies in the fresh food supply chain.
  • Working on making my small ranch in Central TX productive (pasture and cattle are hard).
  • Strength and mobility training 4x-5x/week, plus yoga, plus rowing (which I started recently).
  • Partnering with a friends to acquire interesting long-term assets.
  • Practicing guitar.
  • Building rituals with my close friends to help us stay connected.
  • Reading, lots and lots of reading.
  • Investor in, advisor of and board member of a few interesting companies.
  • Supporting and hustling for the leaders behind VTF Capital’s past venture investments, especially the companies I focus on.

Feel free to email me about one of the above topics. Unfortunately, I am unlikely to respond to messages that aren’t about the above.

This page was inspired by Derek Sivers and his /now. I had my one of my biggest nerd fanboy moments when I found out I was a testimonial on his site.
