My name is Jeffrey — this is my page on the internet.

I'm a Principal @ The O.H.I.O. Fund

I'm a co-founder @ Axuall, Inc. — a startup ($41 million raised) in Cleveland, Ohio

I host the Lay of The Land podcast on entrepreneurship in Cleveland & Northeast Ohio — amplifying the stories of >175 local CEOs (>50k downloads)

 I'm an advisor to Signal Cleveland (non-profit local news) and Venture for America

 Prior, I worked on building secure election infrastructure

I invest in other entrepreneurs

I love to read

Sometimes, I write down my thoughts

Other times, I share my thoughts on other podcasts — Wisdom, Wealth & Wellness Podcast (11/2023) | Built In Ohio Podcast (3/2021

Trying to do more things I love, and fewer things I do not

I enjoy thinking about the world, nature, running, investing, entrepreneurship, technology for good, art, motorcycles, optimism, connecting people. New Yorker at heart masquerading as a Clevelander

Flânuering — proclivity to possibility

Say hello — I love ideas and learning new things!
