It’s a new year! A new year is viewed as a type of mini-rebirth. It’s a chance to leave the bad things of the last year in the past and recommit yourself to becoming a better person. It’s the time to think about the person you want to become, where you are headed and ensure that you are on the …

What I’m Thinking About
I’m a chronic over-thinker and over-analyzer. Because I spend so much time doing it, I thought it would be useful to start writing them down, saving them for reference, and sharing them publicly for feedback and critique. I’m a glutton for critique!
I’ve worked on a range of consumer tech products. Mobile games and apps, machine learned systems, digital advertising, and more. I like to share my ideas on Product.
I’m a huge proponent of financial freedom and generational wealth. I share my thoughts here and on Wealth Noir and talk about my personal journey.
Diversity in Tech
I’m an advisor to /dev/color, a non-profit focused on transforming black software engineers and have spoken at AfroTech, Saastr, and The ACM Richard Tapia Conference in support of diversity in Tech.
I started Wealth Noir in 2017 to help erase the wealth gap in America by providing financial literacy education and fintech wealth management solutions targeted at high-income underrepresented millennials.
We are a fintech company with a soul proving we can create a thriving fintech company with a strong social mission to improve the lives of our customers. We believe that financial freedom and generational wealth have never been more accessible and work to provide the education and tools needed to increase access.
I continue to spend part of my time as Principal of the Victoriam Consulting Group using my experience running product teams to help companies facing product or engineering issues or just looking to grow. I also work with candidates interviewing for product management and do a lot of pro bono advising to startups around product and digital marketing.

I love robo-advisors. Don’t get me wrong. I love many things. My son, my wife, real estate, blogging, a good cognac and a strong whiskey. But I'll leave those for another day. What is a robo-advisor? I’ve been surprised how often I get this question from friends (although I shouldn’t be …
I don’t write about myself enough. I mean, the site is literally my name. It’s a combination of wanting to deliver value to everyone who blesses me by visiting, and because I don’t like to talk about myself. But I'm hoping to become more vulnerable, to be more authentic and to be more …
