Hi, I'm Reza 👋

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 the Head of 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 in 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.
