I'm Alex. I'm a product-focused startup founder and software engineer. I've been building early-stage companies since 2009. I'm currently working on new ideas. Check out juice.do to learn more.

I'm most active on Twitter.

Occasionally I do a bit of advising and/or consulting. Feel free to get in touch. Cheers!

This website

I write here mostly about startups and software engineering. I occasionally post something of a work journal of my software development work. I also maintain a running list of some my favorite writing, my regular reading list, something approaching rules to live by, and a list of books I mean to one-day read.

I've built and led teams in healthcare, marketplaces, video startups, finance, and many others. I love learning and the process of learning. When I'm not building something, I occasionally shoot photos. I also have a long-running interest in macro economics and financial markets, which I write about every once in a while.
