About Daris

I am passionate. I'm seeking a partner (web/app developer/engineer) who is passionate, trustworthy, and committed to our goals and success. I had an epiphany some time ago and decided I needed to jump back into start ups and into creating/realizing my vision again. I've been working on ways to connect people who currently aren't connecting because of formal/informal institutions and/or inefficient markets. I believe my true talent is in connecting people and extending choice to folks who otherwise wouldn't have access to it. I've found unique ways to do all of this through technology.
I also love basketball, golf, music, exercise, healthy living, and my family.
I'd like my partner to have:
1. Startup experience in the tech industry
2. A unified vision
3. Skills that complement my skills
4. Someone who is operational & level headed (making sure we develop product/customer concurrently and don't prematurely scale)
5.An interest in diversity/culture
6. Someone who has raised VC before
7. Someone who wants to build!
8. Someone who is laid back, easy to chat with, and loves creating big solutions.

If you do not think you are any of these things, please still send me a message! Only through connecting will we truly know if it's a good fit .
