I’m a professional poker player, entrepreneur, and angel investor.
If someone tells you that they are any of these three things, you should be very skeptical. Here’s why they apply to me.
For over a decade, I’ve cleared millions of dollars in profit in the highest stakes games online and in cardrooms in Vegas, Monaco, and Macau. I’ve played on NBC’s Poker After Dark, and made two deep runs in the World Series of Poker main event.
During the online poker boom, I was a lead instructor and co-owner of the largest poker training site, CardRunners. I helped build CardRunners into a subscription business with over 10,000 members and a thriving poker community.
In early 2016, I cofounded an e-commerce company importing and selling physical products. Most of my professional efforts are currently dedicated to growing this business, which is currently profitable and doing high six figures in annual revenue.
I really enjoy investing in early stage companies with teams looking to build value. I’ve written checks directly to start-ups, invested through syndicates, and was one of the first investors in seed fund Right Side Capital Management.
