Head of Bloomberg Beta, a new thing. Chairman of OUYA, also new :)
Linked In Description:
Obsessed with how we make work -- the thing we do with more waking hours than any other -- better.
To do that, I prioritize job one: husband (2007 - Present) and father (2008 - Present, promoted to father of two in 2011).
I tried writing my LinkedIn to be honest to both my successes and the other stuff -- so you can understand me better than the camera only showed my good side. If that means you'd rather not work with me, let's be grateful we learned that now! (The only important thing that hit the cutting room floor is the long list of side projects half started, started and abandoned, or started only in my imagination.)
I've had a messy, hand-wringy career (in non-profit, professional services, city government, big media, video games, academia, day-zero startup, investing), where I was never hired for any job for which I was qualified (including starting a company, where I guess I sort of co-hired myself and was still unqualified). Only later did I realize the one thread that tied it all together -- making work better.
In 2013, Bloomberg L.P. gave me the opportunity to turn my obsession with the future of work into my job when we created Bloomberg Beta. I believe the fastest way to make change is to build extraordinary technology companies (and, these days, machine intelligence companies in particular).
To keep learning, I teach a course in media at Berkeley's Haas School of Business, and serve on the boards of a non-profit (the Center for Investigative Reporting).
If you've read to this point (thank you!), and want to connect on LinkedIn, I usually use connections on LinkedIn for references -- so if we have yet to interact, better to just email me. (roy at bloombergbeta dot com)
And last: I type 88 wpm. I play Werewolf. Never at the same time. Yet. I'm unsure if I know enough to give, or even believe in, advice, if you're tempted to ask for any.
