I'm Danny. Some of my friends call me by my last name, Tamez. This photo is of my dog Raya & me at a beach in northern California - her name inspired both a dating app and a Disney movie.
I am a designer, founder, and investor. I spent seven years in Silicon Valley building startup teams, crypto payments, and wearable hardware. Then, I worked as a Venture Partner with GoingVC and Wefunder, and started an app to make venture capital more accessible to all startup founders. I have also run a design & dev shop, and worked with dozens of startups and top companies like Twitter, Coca-Cola, and Red Bull.
I am a native Texan and moved back to Austin during the Snowpocalypse of 2021. Today, I am running new startup experiments and helping people design & build their dream products at Tamez Labs.
I like to spend my free time with friends & family, and when we’re lucky, it involves moving along trails, sliding down mountains, and floating across water.
