In 2009 I started ZeroCater. That story is here.
In 2016 some friends and I started The Archive – a communal living house with
ten sixteen twenty-two residents. I now consider this one of the best decisions I ever made.
In 2017 I invested in Longevity Fund, which invests in early stage biotech companies working on increasing human healthspan. I was also (very incidentally) mentioned in a New Yorker article on Silicon Valley’s Quest to Live Forever.
In 2018 after nine years of running ZeroCater I handed over the reins to our amazing COO (now CEO). I remain involved as Chairman of the Board. I was also interviewed on The Morning Show about what it’s like to live at The Archive
2019 was a year of rest and travel with some tinkering on projects.
