- I explore how things grow. By day, I help early-stage startups get unstuck. By night, I read, write, and contemplate my own stuckness. I'm known to get unreasonably excited and grumpy, sometimes at the same time.
- You can find me around the Internet at @itsmeammario or on my email list (I send about an email per month).
- Previously: On sabbatical at Recurse Center. Building product and team at Morning Consult.
