Summary

I invest in venture and growth-stage technology companies.

My primary area of focus is business-to-business software & tech-enabled B2B data and services companies. I'm involved in all aspects of the investment process, including sourcing, due diligence, transaction structuring and post-investment portfolio support (e.g. board meetings, strategic planning, business development, hiring, M&A opportunities, capital raising, and liquidity events).

Previously I worked as a consultant at Bain & Company, where I focused on strategic and operational improvements for Technology, Financial Services, Healthcare and Consumer Goods companies.
