Leaving Wall St was one of the toughest decisions I've had to make. I was happy on the trading floor. I had a great seat (SP Sales) and a great mentor who always had my back. Ultimately, I just couldn't shake the itch to take a swing in startup-land. The 2 + years since have been one heck of a ride....I'm still having fun on the roller coaster.
"Startup Founder" in a vacuum doesn't mean a lot, so for transparency, I won't be trying to stay anonymous.
We raised a round to build Findigs -- if you're annoyed by having to mail a rent check every month, check us out.
Prior to this, I helped get the restaurant app Seated off the ground as a co-founder-- I'm clearly biased but if you are client-facing/entertaining....it's a no-brainer.
WSO has helped me tremendously over the years, so maybe I can be helpful to those trying to break into, or out of finance. Ask me anything.
