WHAT'S THE MOST CHALLENGING PART ABOUT BEING AN ENTREPRENEUR?
The challenge is the fun of it. If it’s not challenging, it’s not fun. If you have the right mindset, nothing is challenging. If it’s easy, then what’s the fun?
YOUR FAVORITE HACK? SKILL THAT YOU APPLY TO SEE RESULTS?
I’m fast. I don’t think a lot. I do more than I think. I always follow the results of the market. I don’t waste time in studying. I do first. I get feedback. Based on feedback, I do other things. I stay realistic. I listen to the market.
IF YOU HAD TO BE STUCK ON AN ISLAND WITH ANOTHER FH RESIDENT, WHO WOULD IT BE?
KB. She would organize everything and I could live in it. All the animals would organized. The monkeys bringing us bananas. It would be the most organized island in the world!
DESCRIBE YOUR FOUNDER HOUSE EXPERIENCE IN 3 WORDS.
Awesome. Super awesome. Super duper awesome.
WHAT IS YOUR SECRET TALENT?
I love magic. I know a lot of tricks. I used to do them, but have stopped recently.
WHERE ARE YOU IN 30 YEARS?
30 years. Whoa! I don’t know where I am in a day. I decide fast, change fast. I don’t have long-term plans. I have a goal that, in whatever situation I am, I’m alway experimenting with new stuff. The day that I start not-inventing will be the last day of my life.
DESCRIBE YOUR TYPICAL DAY
That’s difficult. Now, here, I do things at the wrong time. I’m still running on agency time. I usually start the day by a visiting my team at our coworking place and brainstorming ideas. We catch up on projects. Plan. Have a lot of fun! I spend about 8 hours there. Usually by 6pm I do my best to visit a couple of events, “hunting events”, where I find my cofounders [for Crazies and Co.]. Then I come back to FH and find a lot of people working and bother them. I stop them from what they’re doing and ask them about ideas; “what do you think of that?” After I’ve bothered enough people, I finish work, catch up on calls on other side of world. Then I sleep. Sometimes I sleep 1 full day and then don’t sleep for 2 full days. It happens about twice a week. It works! I don’t like interrupting the flow [of my work]. That’s an indication that I’m passionate about what I do. I don’t sleep. I don’t care about food. I’m so focused that I’m doing it all night.

WHAT DO YOU HOPE TO ACCOMPLISH ? WHAT DO YOU WANT TO BECOME THROUGH FOUNDER HOUSE?
My plan is to build something. With someone. I’m still looking to find that someone at Founder House. I think business and entrepreneurship is about relationships and less about ideas. It takes time to build relationships and trust. That’s why FH is a great idea. Living and sleeping together makes it easier to trust and know each other. It’s the perfect way to build a relationship.
WHAT ARE YOU LOOKING FOR?
Looking for entrepreneurs with problems. If you have a crazy idea, feel free to approach me! Let’s start something crazy!
