hi. i’m gian 🏴‍☠️

$ ./describe.sh

I build things.

What I do best is lift projects off the ground, derisking new ideas and enabling their full potential. I thrive in the uncertainty of 0-to-1 work.

I’m currently at Replit, doing all sorts of work, from AI research, to data strategy, to growth engineering.

Before Replit, I founded and led Uniwhere, a VC-backed startup supporting students make better decision for their career. We sold it in 2021.

I write about things that pick my interest. If you’re not sure where to start, try Why Ed-tech Startups Don't Scale, What's the Future of IDEs?, or How to Learn Better in the Digital Age.

I’m also publishing a private newsletter, that I send only when I feel like I have something to add to the conversation. I read every reply. You can join it here:
