I owe much to thought leaders like the two gents (Jason Fried & DHH) at Signal v. Noise (Basecamp) whose generosity with their knowledge and philosophy has helped me grow tremendously, and I decided to pay it forward by following their lead.
I recently left my job at a venture capital firm to pursue other goals and interests. I now build software to make complex things like insurance smarter, simpler, and approachable. Despite the long road still ahead, I want to share my story and the lessons I learned from reading, building, failing, and reflecting. I believe it might be useful or entertaining to others.
Down the line, I hope to share:
- How insurance works
- How insurance companies & agents make money
- Basic financial technology tips & tools
- Smart car technologies
- Millennials and business
- Strategic positioning
My philosophy, sweat, and humor will be on full display on Marina products soon. Until then, I hope to come up for air once in a while and share what I’ve learned in the worlds of tech, finance, and miscellany. If you want to follow this journey, stay tuned for more thoughts and the product release.
