👋🏼 I'm Craig

I live in Clinton Hill, Brooklyn with my partner Annie, our son Bela, and our dog, Roo. I am the Executive Director of Innovation and Entrepreneurship at the NYU Tandon School of Engineering and a Venture Partner at CollabFund. I invest in and help people think about how to invest in Climate. I was the founding CEO of the Climate Collective . I co-founded a company called The Crop Project - a regenerative agricultural processing company focused on kelp. Someday I'll move to the woods, but in the meantime, NYC is home and the greatest city on earth. Oh yeah, I'm also a mostly proud, fourteen-year member of the Park Slope Food Coop - yeah, that one.

Who are you, Craig?
