Hey World

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.

Thank you for stopping by. If you’d like to stay in touch, you can subscribe to my mailing list or follow me @dannytamez.
