This page was updated on March 23, 2024. The purpose of the page is to share what I'm up to and working on currently (aim to update every few months).Where my head is at. ❤️ + 🧠Building innovative technology with good people where we can create impact in people's everyday lives.Knolly, previously, BookBuddy 📘While working on Founder Station's AI-cofounder application and tinkering with AI on January 1, 2024, I got hit with an idea to create an immersive reading experience with AI. It's a long story about how I came about this insight so when you reach out please feel free to ask about the story - it's a fun one and I plan to record a video explaining it. And we are building. The goal is to have a working prototype by March, 2024. It will be scrappy but I'm eager to start learning with real users. I am building this in public so feel free to tap into my Twitter feed where I share a lot. Join the waitlist, hereFounder Station (previously Moonshot Ventures) 🚀My vision for Founder Station is building a first of it's kind, AI-powered launchpad to fast-track founders from idea to market. The goal is to unlock untapped human potential with technology and community, enabling millions to realize their innovative ideas. I am seeking an Entrepreneur in Residence (EIR) opportunity and a like-minded co-founder/s to refine this concept. Together, we can redefine the entrepreneurial landscape and ignite a new era of builders.

I am on a mission to support innovation in entrepreneurship itself and help the school elevate its potential to democratize entrepreneurship and continue to offer a world-class business education.Women Who Startup ⛰️Women Who Startup began in 2012 with 2 Denver-based friends and by 2015 was the fastest-growing platform for entrepreneurs to learn, connect, and raise money in Colorado. I am currently thinking about working with a creative agency and sponsoring partners to reshape the WWS brand, tell the decade-long story of the platform, build a new website to present the past, present and future of WWS, and position WWS for its next chapter to support women entrepreneurs. I also want to launch this next evolution of WWS in 2024 during Denver Startup Week, where it all began, possibly with my first book and the story of WWS. Looking for creative partners and industry sponsors to make this take shape for Sept 2024 blowout event.
