Family & Home

I try to spend a lot of time at home with Amy and our pups because, as a startup founder, I never know when I'm not going to have time. Together, we hike, boat, travel, and exercise. We enjoy our home and quiet life in Summerlin/Las Vegas.

Raising or Joining a Fund

Being a solo-founder gets old, and while I really enjoy it, I want to work in a team setting, and work with startups as a career. So, I'm furthering a career in Venture Capital that will allow me to continue working with incredible startups and with the best investors in North America. I'm narrowing down opportunities in the space, but focused on either raising my own, or joining a partnership operating a venture fund. Contact me if this is interesting and/or you'd like to have some involvement.

Startup Scouting as a Service (SAAS)

I'm starting to productize my Scouting services into a monthly subscription product that brings investable opportunities right to investors each month. These are hand-selected deals based on the investors preferences, thesis, and interests. More info can be found in the link below.

Laicos Cloud & Laicos

Right now, I'm building my seventh company, Laicos Cloud. Laicos Cloud, a subsidiary of Laicos, is an IAAS (Infrastructure as a Service) company, and a valuable resource for under-optimized startups across the globe. We provide affordable and budgetable Bare Metal, Cloud, HPC, and Storage to startups and small businesses (+ some Fortune 500). I spend the majority of my time learning about the industry, connecting with data center, colocation, and bare metal companies, and sharing ways for others to get involved.

Personal Health & Wellness

I'm always learning and improving on my health - in 2016 I started a program to create a sustainable diet plan, which I've tweeted about since 2017. It's called a ``365-Day Challenge``, where for an entire year I eat healthy and maintain a diet and exercise schedule. I've blogged about this a few times (1) (2). Through these blogs and tweets, I've helped over a dozen people improve their health and lives because of it. Reach out if I can help you.

Helping & Mentoring Startups

For the last few years, I've been sourcing and scouting investment opportunities for top Investors and VCs from North America. To date, I've closed over $30M in funding for startups. In addition, I send out two ``dealflow`` opportunity emails each month that highlight the companies I'm working with. If you're an investor and you'd like to be added to this list, drop your email here.

This idea was inspired by the many entrepreneurs that came before me. Thank you.
