Hi, I’m Alex.

I’ve brought 5 early-stage products to hundreds of thousands of people: 2x as founder, 2x as growth lead, 2x as designer/developer.

I caught the entrepreneurial bug at age 14 selling beats to rappers over the Internet. At age 16, I had a YouTube channel that went viral with 1M+ views. I fell deeply in love with the Internet and the creative process this way and never stopped making things since.

Today, I’m most passionate about how we learn, work, communicate, collaborate and create, and it’s my goal to contribute as much as I can in these areas.

If anything you see here that resonates, please send me a message.

My skills

  • Product: Customer Development, UX/UI, Project Management

  • Programming: HTML/CSS, Javascript, iOS, Web Scraping, APIs

  • Marketing: Funnel Management, Content, Performance Ads

  • BD: Pitch Decks, Lead Gen & Outbound, Negotiation

  • Audio: Ableton for production, Rekordbox for mixing

  • Video/Photo: Film and DSLR + editing

What I strive for in my work

  1. My favorite definition of work ethic

  2. Bias towards action

  3. Customer obsession

  4. Radical candor

  5. Reasoning from first principles

  6. Growth mindset

Other Projects

Unnamed Eyewear Design Project

At one point, I became creatively interested in eyewear so I collaborated with a Maori jewelry craftsman in Spain to design these sunglasses made out of strong but lightweight bull horn.

We ran out of money before we finished perfecting it and they never made it to full production but one day, I want to reincarnate them and complete the vision.


Ajussi One
soundcloud.com/ajussi-one

I like to make and perform music with my friends.
I go by Ajussi One.
Sometimes we get carried away.


Web Design & Development + Photography Direction
allseasonseventrentals.com

I designed and developed a new website for a local small-business that provides equipment rentals for events.

The presentation of their products was important, so I recruited a talented designer and photographer, Xuebing Du, and also directed a product shoot at Golden Gate Park.
