My Favorite Books
Creativity, Inc. - Ed Catmull
Steve Jobs - Walter Isaacson
The Innovation Stack - Jim McKelvey
This book was super helpful for me when I read it in January 2022. Lots of the advice from Square applies really well to what I'm building at Baseflow, dealing with legacy systems - not only financial, but also legal.
Play Bigger - Al Ramadan, Chris Lochhead, Dave Peterson, Kevin Maney
I got this book recommended during my time at Maestro (formerly Airwork) in the summer of 2019. After having crashed my first startup, it changed my mind about how category defining companies are built.
Free Private Cities - Titus Gebel
This book helped me visualize the future I want to build with Baseflow. It's like the Sovereign Individual, but better. PS: Got it recommended at a mansion party during Miami Hack Week in January 2022, you can't make that shit up.
Zero to One - Peter Thiel, Blake Masters
It completely changed the way I thought about entrepreneurship, and encouraged me to start my first startup in the Fall of 2018.
