🏦 I founded Authenticated Ventures, a venture studio and playground for our investor and startup network. We invest in creators through a few different financial vehicles

💿Recovering record label marketing executive from the LA/NYC 90’s hip hop / r&b “golden era” who worked at Columbia Records with all your favorite artists.

🙂The Authenticated is our membership community consisting of founders, funders and bosses. We have a club here on Clubhouse and do a lot of our programs “off-campus” in our METAverse. Our superpower is that we are able to “Scale Serendipity” by making the rooms where things happen

📲Text 415-843-8100 with “clubhouse” if I can be helpful or “DJ” if you want to hang out in our avatar world when we spin records.

✈️LA based, Bay Area native who has been moving around globally for years // LA-NYC-ATL-RIO-LDN-Dubai-Tel Aviv-Palo Alto-Oakland. My people are your people. Family roots are in 🇧🇸 🇮🇹 🇩🇪

👨🏽‍💻Been working at the intersection of tech, culture and hustle since the 90’s. I moved from holding senior roles at record labels, fashion brand, tech startups, advertising agencies and venture to building my own businesses. Though I have had 2 exits my mom still doesn’t know what I do for a living.
