What’s the best advice you’ve ever received?

Recognizably true but can’t be overstated: seek positive-sum systems and relationships, with long horizons.

What inspires you?

People with originality, who are willing to think outside the box and pursue new ideas, and who are relentless in their commitments and passion.

What would you tell an aspiring entrepreneur?

Focus on an emerging field, immerse yourself in its complexities, find what’s missing, and just keep building. Shockingly few people do this consistently, leaving ample opportunity for those who do.
