About

I'm a design partner for early to mid-stage ventures.

I run a brand and digital product studio called The Workshop – partnering with design-led venture capital, private equity and founders on the ideas that shape our collective future.

I’m also an investor in early-stage ideas and exceptional founders, play the bagpipes with one of the top bands in the world, love to surf, am passionate about health & fitness, have too many pairs of sneakers and obsess over good food and life experiences.

After years of working in New York, London & Toronto, I’m now based with my wife and son in Mallorca, Spain.

Work Experience

2012 — Now
Toronto

We (1) invest in exceptional founders and ideas (2) provide an essential team with no weak links (3) deliver impact through creative, strategy and technology (4) bring a clear understanding of how to reach level one and scale, together.

We deliver full-time commitment without long-term overhead, a self-directed team without ego and a serious approach that's seriously fun.

Tre’dish is a community-based technology platform at the forefront of the food sharing economy. We’re creating a new way for people to experience local home-made cooking by enabling Home Chefs to share their talent and build a profile from their home kitchen. We believe sharing food is a powerful gesture that goes beyond a simple transaction. When we share recipes and cooking, we’re sharing a part of ourselves, our culture and our influences.

2019 — Now

Angel Investing

I invest my own money into fresh ideas and founders that excite me – providing tactical business, product and design feedback, mentorship and strategic introductions. Think of me as a design advisor with skin in the game.

I enjoy supporting startups at a super early stage, working on undesigned solutions with founders who are brave enough to go all-in. I find that mindset inspiring.
