Leaving Tsavo

thanks for all the fish

So I’m making an exit from my day job at Tsavo. If you’ve followed me long enough this probably isn’t a huge surprise. Three startups in under three years, not a great track record I know. But this is tech, the space moves fast and I’m just trying to keep up. Sometimes the only way to do that is by playing a little leap frog.

I had the experience of a lifetime with these startups. Along the way I learned a few things, did a few things right and have made my own share of mistakes. With each iteration I leveled up, doubled down and left with a new lens on pretty much everything. There is something unique about the startup environment, so unique that you might also call it fragile. Much like the software it produces, there are always challenges scaling its very existence. When you take a group of dynamic people and a few millions dollars you can’t always predict the outcome.

I’ll save you the back story and instead send out a big thanks to the teams at Tsavo I’ve had the pleasure to work with, both here in Santa Monica and our office up north. I’m really proud of the work I’ve done, but even more inspired but what I’ve seen others do. Together we learned how simple it can be to drive web traffic and make an inappropriate amount of money in the process. OK it’s actually needlessly complex, but that’s what makes it interesting, to me at least.

Not ready to announce what’s next, but I would assume you could hear about it first here.
