Favorite Quote:

"People don't want to do new things if they think they're going to be bad at them or people are going to laugh at them. You have to be willing to subject yourself to failure, to be bad, to fall on your head and do it again, and try stuff that you've never done in order to be the best you can be."

Laird Hamilton

and the classic definition of success really rings true to me

“To laugh often and much; to win the respect of the intelligent people and the affection of children; to earn the appreciation of honest critics and endure the betrayal of false friends; to appreciate beauty; to find the beauty in others; to leave the world a bit better whether by a healthy child, a garden patch, or a redeemed social condition; to know that one life has breathed easier because you lived here. This is to have succeeded.”

Why Fintech?

Finance is all around us, and can make people's lives easier or harder. I love investing in products & technology that have the ability to make people's lives better.


Undergrad at Carnegie Mellon, Grad school at the University of Michigan. Bumbled around in software and consulting before I found my calling in Fintech, then further refined it by becoming a VC :)
