Co-founded Rhino ($100mm+ ARR), serial founding engineer with multiple exits

I cofounded Rhino, which created a new industry in security deposit insurance, has saved renters billions of dollars, and has generated hundreds of millions of dollars of revenue.

Before that, I was a founding or seed stage engineer at startups that were acquired by Facebook, IAC, Samsung, and Nike.

I've been building web software since the '90s and venture-backed startups since the aughts.

Areas of expertise:

  • Getting a product to market
  • Hiring technical talent
  • Scaling up & down
  • Performance optimization
  • Simplifying infrastructure
  • Analytics & business intelligence
  • Solving thorny technical problems
  • B2B & Enterprise sales
  • Assessing team performance
  • Cybersecurity & SOC 2
  • Etc.
