Hi, I'm Alexis.

I've co-founded one billion dollar company (Reddit) and the VC fund I co-founded, Initialized, has seed invested in six others. I'm out here, worldwide, looking for more. 🚀

I write things about entrepreneurship, investing, style, health, and family.

Being the owner of an esports franchise (Cloud9) is even more fun when they win the first ever Overwatch League Grand Finals after a very turbulent season. I wish I could've been in Brooklyn for this, but I had it on the TV in San Francisco for my wife and I to watch as we were working.

Gesture wrote a great piece on The Players Tribune after the victory. The morning after, I woke up to this fantastic home screen on Overwatch. These are amazing times in esports and it’s all just getting started.

If you’re not bought into esports yet, you’re running out of excuses. This is the new frontier of sport.
