Hi, I'm Reza ๐Ÿ‘‹

This is my online home where I share my thinking, learning and writing on a wide variety of topics from business and starting up, to philosophy and productivity.


My background is in engineering, but I've spent almost all my career starting and scaling tech startups at the intersection of go-to-market and growth.

Currently, I'm leading growth at On Deck, where top talent comes to accelerate their ideas and careers, surrounded by a world-class community. I'm also an advisor and part-time investor ย early-stage companies.

I'm fascinated by what makes humans and businesses thrive and reach their true potential.

To fuel this curiosity and publicly share my learnings, I write a weekly newsletter with musings and ideas on personal growth, business and life philosophy.

I also host a podcast, where I interview entrepreneurs and creators on their mindsets and habits.

I've been to 42 countries and lived in 3. Through my travels, I've come to appreciate how similar we are as humans regardless of race, ethnicity or colour. Here are some snapshots from these trips taken over the years ๐Ÿ–ผ
