Description

Hi! I’m the Founder & CEO of Loyal. We’re developing drugs to extend dog lifespan; I want to build the defining aging company (“The SpaceX of aging”).

In the last year, we’ve built the team from just me to 20+, from idea to clinical studies - and we are just getting started. Cool things we are doing include: running a 500-dog aging study, building a model that can accurately quantify dog aging from images, and building campaigns to educate vets and Pet Parents on dog aging.

I’m looking for a Chief of Staff to be my right hand (wo)man to help me scale as a CEO. You’ll work with me on everything I do day to day, with a focus on helping me keep on top of my increasingly heavy schedule.
