About Kai

I'm an existential horror author, full-stack developer, actor, artist, newtuber, photographer, teacher, linguist, history nerd, and otherwise multipotentialite drowning in too many projects I very much don't want to do by myself. I'm also one of the most creative people you will ever meet. Don't believe that? Challenge me yourself.

Otherwise, I'm just your everyday storyteller seeking to build an app to change the way readers find new books and help self-publish authors better connect with readers. Amazon--while a leader in self-publishing--has a recommendations algorithm that has failed on both these counts.

As such, I'm seeking a co-founder skilled in the one thing I'm paradoxically cursed to bad at: Communications. Things like marketing, team building, etc. You must be engaged with a least one kind of storytelling industry (eg: writing, publishing, screenwriting, comics, etc.), as I'd prefer there was no learning curve.


Some men see things as they are and say, why; I dream things that never were and say, why not. - George Shaw
