Why this topic matters

There are two things that have been true in my career: 1) I never do the same thing twice and 2) I only take jobs that I feel deeply unqualified for. The name of the game in startups is constant evolution. Join me as I share the most important lessons I’ve learned working inside of growing and scaling companies. I’ll share with you the summary of everything I wish someone had told me.

Former COO at Lambda School, Prev. Head of Ops at the Chan Zuckerberg Initiative, Partner at &Then

For better or worse, I am probably best known for coining the term “Give Away Your Legos” to talk about what it’s like to work inside rapidly scaling companies. 

I currently run The Glue Club, a community that supports and elevates the strongest operators in the world, and write about lessons from building and scaling startups at

Over the past 10 years, I have been the COO/Head of Operations for multiple organizations including the Chan Zuckerberg Initiative (CZI), a philanthropy founded by Mark Zuckerberg and Priscilla Chan; Quip, a start-up founded by Bret Taylor that sold to Salesforce for $750m; and Lambda School. I have also served as a board member, advisor, or interim exec at a wide variety of startups in fintech, climate, education, healthcare, and Web3.

Before that, I spent five years at Facebook in multiple different roles doing things like developing Facebook's long-term mobile strategy and building a lot of its early People philosophy and systems (and a hot second at Google, where I started my career in tech).
