  2. see an overview of my story
  3. check in on what i'm currently focused on

my core values

high standards

  • i constantly hold myself and others, who so chose, to strive towards being the exception.
  • high standards are teachable, domain specific, and require realistic expectations.
  • the ironic thing is low standards are just as contagious, but to maintain high standards requires more active mindset.

creative collaboration

  • having a twin biases me to shared space, constantly pushing me to seek meaningful relationships.
  • i also think the myth of the lone genius needs to be rewritten. everything worth doing requires a team.
  • im curious what high performance looks like as a multiplayer game across all areas of life.

relentlessly resourceful

  • i'm curious with how to create more with less. i do not let immediate resoures limit what's possible.
  • everything i've done so far going 0 to 1 has had more reasons not to exist than to exist.
  • with an ownership mindset, i dedicate myself to the commitments i make.
