Hey! I'm Jason 👋

I’m an investor and entrepreneur with a focus on hiring and culture.

I currently run an angel fund with 20+ investments, and am building the CTO community for AWS.

Previously I founded LessonLodge, a lesson marketplace, which was acquired by Reverb.  Reverb is now part of the Etsy family.

I also wrote the Organizational Design Playbook to help founders build an aligned and performance-oriented culture.
