Early life and education
After graduation, he moved out to Los Angeles to get a job in Hollywood, and took on tasks such as a set PA and a script reader. He then moved to San Diego, where he did front-end web development. During his stint as a web developer, he started taking blogging more seriously, which helped him get noticed by VentureBeat. He became a blogger for VentureBeat from 2007 to 2009, and a blogger for TechCrunch from 2009 to 2014. As a blogger, much of his blogging focused on Apple, and he was "known best for his unabashed pro-Apple bias". He became a partner at CrunchFund in 2011, where he helped build a portfolio including Airbnb, Betable, Crowdtilt, Ifttt, Karma, Mailbox, Path, Square, Uber, Vine, and Yammer. He left CrunchFund for Google Ventures in May 2013.
