Hi, I'm Jon and I like to build technology that changes lives.

AboutPreviously, I led engineering teams at Affirm building the next generation of financial technology within our new product accelerator. We built the first version of Debit+ and then a crypto product. Prior to that, I led the Solutions Architecture function defining and building new technology and integrations for the biggest retailers in the world. It was a blast going from 400 to 2400 employees in ~3 years! Before Affirm, I spent 1.5 years at Engagio (acquired by Demandbase).I graduated from UC Berkeley with a major in Cognitive Science (concentration in Computational Modeling and Data Science). I love combining my business and software engineering skills and interests to solve complex problems.In my free time, I enjoy martial arts, going to the gym, spending time with my wife, friends and family, and making (and eating) too much peanut butter.I also own + invest in businesses at Window Ventures.

Two Passions
1. I love helping engineers find fulfilling careers in the tech industry. Happy to answer questions about tech and startups, do resume reviews, help with applications, find great companies, etc. If you are interested, please set up a time to chat with me here.
2. I love coaching and helping people think through big decisions, getting unstuck in life, or finding mental wellbeing. I draw inspiration from Syd Banks & Alex Hormozi, two very different sources that I believe bring a good balance of psychology and tough love/no bullshit. If you're interested in talking through some things, shoot me an email below.
