Weekly Newsletters

Each week I send out an newsletter with just 5 things that I've found interesting that week, it could be a website, an app, or a Kickstarter campaign. It's mostly on tech and startups. If that sounds interesting to you sign up below or check out the Archive here.

How was your week? I’m not sure if it’s related to the full moon or the heat, but it has been a rather tough week for me emotionally, between feeling lost and frustrated sleep haven’t been easy…fingers crossed on a better week
