About Gavin McMahon

gavin mcmahonHey, I’m Gavin. I analyze trends in tech, finance and healthcare, and try to work out what is going to happen next. I’ve been tinkering with technologies, enthralled by startups and fascinated by the stories of entrepreneurs behind them, for as long as I can remember.

I decided to start this blog to ramble on about things I find interesting, and as a repository for new things I’m learning.

I live and work in NYC.
