After moving from NYC to Denver, going from a small apartment to a multi-room home, most traditional interior designers looked at my budget and didn’t have much interest in working with me, however it made me realize there was an opportunity for a service that could make designing our homes much easier, more affordable, and overall, a far more delightful experience.
I'm driven by being excited about the process of starting with an idea and taking that all the way to products that affect the lives of millions positively. I like the process of going through the hustle. I'm a technologist at heart, which means I'm optimistic by nature about our prospects of improving the human condition through technology. Computer vision and machine learning are maturing technologies with a lot of potential to solve real world problems.
Testing cancer treatments in a person to find out what will work for them has always seemed barbaric to me. Using patient cells and our own expertise in machine learning to find individual treatments has so much more potential to impact patient lives.
Sexually transmitted infections (STIs) are a major public health problem, for which individuals and healthcare systems pay dearly. Yet people aren't getting tested or treated. Some struggle to access sexual health services; others don't even know they need to. To truly tackle STIs, we need a proactive, rather than reactive, approach. Our mission is to simplify and destigmatise sexual health by supporting education, improving access to services, and promoting equality through an integrated ecosystem that empowers individuals to live healthier, happier lives.
