Tell us a bit about your day to day…   

I'm always on the road, meeting interesting founders and fellow investors. I split my time between meeting prospects and working with existing investments. I work...a lot.

But also eat my way across the world for fun :) 400k miles a year is starting to wear on me, but I'll probably try to keep it up for a few more years!   

How do you wind down from a day in the office...  

Most days I eat dinner at home with my fiance, watch some TV (likely with extreme levels of violence or pure comedy), take a hot shower, and do a Calm meditation before bed

What are your 3 top tips for avoiding Burnout?

  • Don't forget...nothing matters. It's just a game  
  • Focus on friends and family as sources of joy and fulfillment  
  • Travel often, even if it's in your own city -- helps you appreciate hope and learn about who you are and who you want to be
