I'm an investor and entrepreneur living in San Antonio, Texas. I blog about stuff that interests me here. (Yeah, I know. So 2005 of me, right?)

A good portion of the content here are things I tell entrepreneurs over and over. So, I write it down hoping other people might find it interesting.

I also write about community-building. At this point in life, I'm really passionate about changing where I live into a place where my kids will want to live. I just saw too many of my peers leave for bigger, more active cities and never come back. I think the path to change the city for the better is by creating a vibrant startup community downtown. So, I like to work on that.

Lastly, I highlight companies where the Geekdom Fund or RealCo have gotten involved. We're especially proud of the people we get to help.
