Welcome to Scatter Brain!

Every week, I do investigative deep dives with startup founders, executives and investors. The goal in every chat is to bring you some perspectives that are not easily available anywhere else online. Scatter Brain is all about depth, which can make the chats somewhat lengthy. Every now and then, I would share my thoughts on something topical or share conversations smart people that don’t fit the typical startup archetype. You can expect to hear from me at least three times a week!
