Hello, I'm Monte. 👋🏻 I would best describe myself as a curious, growth-minded & driven person. I’m an experienced product & founding engineer that’s currently building expertise in early-stage marketing & growth.
I’m currently working on Rosebud Journal along w/ Chrys & Sean at Just Imagine, Inc. We are a small but highly experienced team exploring how AI can help improve mental health. We work from an office in Santa Monica, CA, and have our weekly 1-1s walking on the beach. 🏖️
We previously worked on Curio, which was a widely recognized NFT analytics tool in the Web3 space.
My first job out of college was at a short-term rental startup called Pillow which Expedia acquired in 2018. After that, I worked as an iOS engineer at Expedia for 3 years.
I have shipped technology products to production using: React Native, Swift & SwiftUI, React, Express, Ruby on Rails, Postgres, AWS Lambdas, Twitter Bot, and Discord Bot.
