I am a product guy at heart. My superpower is identifying big problems to be solved.
During my time at Comcast, Chris Sugden and I met periodically in Princeton to chat about the market. On one occasion, he asked for my perspective on a potential investment; I gave him some tough feedback (which turned out to be right!). Fast forward some years, I reconnected when considering my next move. Never looked back.
I have always been a big fan of Jazz (Miles Davis, Pat Metheny, John Coltrane, Chick Corea).
I was cashier and salesman at my dad's shoe store in Manhattan. Working there gave me an opportunity to interact with a lot of celebrities (e.g., Tina Louise, Naomi Campbell, Joan Rivers, Anne Buydens)...and touch a lot of famous feet!
