Jack Vaughn is an expatriate English-American entrepreneur and financial analyst.

Born January 30, 1989 in Toronto, Canada, I studied Writing at York University before dropping out to move to Los Angeles to finish making the film Cherries and Clover which I had written in high school.

In California, I founded two startups: Parking Spot Saver and Enterprise Sound, before heavily investing in Bitcoin. Now I am an independent stock trader and have been traveling the world ever since.

Enterprise Sound

This was a music streaming service for businesses that I cofounded in 2015 with Lucas Gerbeaux. Similar to Spotify or Pandora, except that we also covered the licensing for our clients since playing copyrighted music in a business without paying royalties is illegal. For a monthly subscription our clients could listen to +100 stations generated by our algorithm. We wrote the whole platform to run on an AWS MEAN stack for a tenth the development cost of our competitors. But despite investor interest I abandoned the project to focus on bitcoin.

Testosterone: Hormone of Champions

With it a man is: confident, dominant, invigorated, unstoppable. Without it: sluggish, wimpy, bald, old. No other hormone creates so many physical indications of genetic and mental excellence and such easily identifiable predictors of success. (read more...)

Mushroom Trip II (2011)

So yesterday my actor friend Randy Blekitas and I set off on our long awaited trip to the Mojave desert with at least half an ounce of quality psilocybin mushrooms.

My Values

Openmindedness There is no trait more silently costly than a closed mind - it can't see all the chances passing by, nor estimate their value. This subjects one to potentially unlimited opportunity cost. (read more...)
