Engineer by Day, Venture Capitalist by Night

For the past three years, I have had two jobs. I work full-time as an engineer at Google and part-time as an investor at Bessemer Venture Partners. Many people have asked why I do this, how it happened, and how it works. I hope this post addresses all of these questions.

WHY I DO IT

I value learning above all else, and I have organized my life around this value. This might change in the future if I ever have a family of my own or amass enough knowledge where I feel I should spend more time “influencing” the world, but right now, my life is about attaining knowledge.

HOW IT HAPPENED

In 2017, I decided Google would be the optimal place to work next for two primary reasons:

My calendar

If it isn’t on my calendar, it doesn’t happen. Although, I have learned my limits with this. Scheduling a first date by sending a calendar invite doesn’t seem to go over so well.

WHY KEEP DOING IT

Even after I explain all of this, I still get asked what it is really like to have two jobs and why I continue doing it. Why stress yourself out, and put so much pressure on yourself?
