About Me

👋 Hi, I'm DeWayne Roy.

Previously, I founded Petly, a smart dog home for storefronts.

Shortly after, I bought a one-way ticket to San Francisco, and now I work for Truebill (YC W16).

On the side, you'll find me building Vio with friends, writing here, reading voraciously, and admiring contemporary art.

I like making things without code and helping people.

So far, I've helped hundreds of people find jobs in VC with Venture Jobs and coffeeshops in San Francisco with SF Cafes.

I love learning. Right now, I'm really interested in:

  • Metacognition + Mental Models

  • The Outcomes Side of Marketplaces

  • Financial Crises + Financial Fraud and Scandals

  • The Evolution of the Internet

  • The History of Venture Capital

  • The Economics of Contemporary Art
