“Rebuilding our financial model starting with a Foresight template — and layering in Taylor’s consulting — saved me a considerable amount of time and resulted in a far more sophisticated model. Working with Taylor allowed me more time to focus on my business and my fundraising. I would recommend a Foresight template to any business owner.”

Taylor Davidson, Founder, Foresight

I created the financial models behind Foresight so early-stage entrepreneurs can spend less time on finance and more time on their products. I care about financial modeling because I believe that financial models can help us make critical business decisions even if the models themselves are not “always right”. Financial models can help even the earliest entrepreneurs if we build “minimum viable models” to focus on the decisions that matter most.

Design Principles

I build tastefully opinionated models that abide by general modeling standards.

Meaning, if you've used a well constructed model before, you'll probably understand the format and layout pretty quickly - here are my formatting conventions. Structurally, I generally true to the Fast Standard for financial modeling, with my own opinions, honed by building models for startups and investors for 20 years, sprinkled throughout.
