Braun Shedd


Now - as of Oct 31, 2019

Back in SF, currently smoky and with shortening days.

First time I’ve left a job I loved – it’s a lot harder to do than I would have thought.

Giving up rent control for the adventure of a new neighborhood, apartment, and job! Life is about change :-)

Here to find the Successful Dropouts Meetup?





  • I co-founded the blind/deaf tech startup Actiview
  • I won hackathons including Money20/20, and others
  • I previous worked in venture capital
  • I help people rethink going to college
  • You can also see my periodically updated resume here


Writing gives only a small glimpse into a person, but you're welcome to see some of my prior thoughts below

Interested in getting updates?

Get occasional (once a month) emails about new articles and research I've completed, and stay in-the-loop on my latest travels and projects.
