I also manage a hedge fund and have done so since June of 1998.
I make early stage investments though Social Leverage.
In the Summer of 2006, I created Wallstrip and with the help of Adam Elend, Jeff Marks, Lindsay Campbell and a hard working crew we created over 300 shows. In May 2007, Wallstrip was purchased by CBS.
I am a partner in two other funds called Knight’s Bridge Capital Partners .
I moved out west to play golf, but now rarely do. My hobbies include driving my kids around and staying awake.
