(San Fran) My Lyft driver is dropping me off at SFO, and my thumb is hover above the stars. He got me here in time. He was chatty, but I was working. His music was cool, but I was working. The car was clean, the ride was smooth. But he swerved to make the exit. […]

And yes, the fact that I am writing this digitally adds to the affect. As a multi time entrepreneur, leader, and avid digital doer I’m expected to be on, on, on. And I think I do a good job of delivering on work, but fast. But at certain, sometimes random points, I have come to admit I […]

Uniqlo is a great start up hack: it like a closet in every major city that can make you look good, or at least warm for like… no money. I first caught on in SoHo last winter, when I was freezing cold and spilled Starbucks on myself en route to an investor pitch. I ducked […]

He was one of the first to encourage my ability to lead entrepreneurs and adventurers, describing it as an innate ability to fraternize with all the different types on a […]

Conceived and executed in less than one week’s time, the program delivered tremendous learning for over a dozen young alumni looking for […]

I come from New York (lately), where 9/11 has a quasi-holy status, at least among finance and other former WTC area types. Frankly, I don’t book or expect much business from people on that morning. It’s a time to reflect. But I was in San Francisco this week and did not get any of that […]

Ok, back at the keyboard, happily. In terms of personal happiness, this summer will be the standard by which all future summers are judged. We swam in the sound, played lousy tennis with old rackets, we did pirate adventures, we dived off the high dive (and were rebuked for wearing life vests as two-year olds). […]

I spent the evening hosting an event with George Colony at Forrester Research- the man loves challenging questions and informed debate, I learned that for sure. Before recapping what others may have missed, I want to encourage all Choaties in the start-up universe to join us online and again thank the greater Choate organization for […]
