While studying at Princeton, I realized I had a passion for creating tech that makes managing businesses much more effective. In between stints at Microsoft and a startup in San Francisco, I spent 8 years at Bridgewater, building the tech that systematically manages over $150b in AUM. I couldn't be more excited about the results we will see as we bring that same systematic, data and model-driven approach to venture capital.
I joined the investment team at Insight Partners right out of undergrad. I spent my career there identifying and working with some of the coolest brand-name software and internet deals. It continues to amaze me how quickly the status quo changes in tech, and the improvement that drives in our lives.Tradition and innovation are best when married together- convention keeps things running but innovation sets the course to an undiscovered destination. I can't wait to work with the best entrepreneurs in the world.
My career started in Growth began when I picked up the phone and answered “Good morning, Insight Partners.” I quickly fell in love with the world of Growth and worked my way to Vice President at Insight, then Principal at ICONIQ Capital before launching my own fund. My partner and I (you'll meet her next) have deployed over $2.2B of capital. I've evaluated investments in 35 countries, seen 28 deals close, been involved in boards in 5 countries, and am a TOTAL DEAL JUNKIE.
I joined the investment team at Full In Partners to gain insight and experience in the VC industry. As someone who is passionate about entrepreneurship, it is reassuring to see that there are VC firms out there who truly strive to help and empower entrepreneurs. I believe in the power of effort and consistency, and love supporting entrepreneurs as they change the world through their businesses.
The way I measure success is the quantity and quality of the things I learn during the time I devote to any given task, meeting or project, as well as the respect I have earned along the way. Leading a life of constant change, I've become ever- adapting and always in search of improvement - learning more. I have a thirst for knowledge and even greater hunger for success. Feed me!
I’ve always viewed technology as a kind of "manmade magic", which is why I decided to dive deeper into software engineering and product design five years ago. Before joining Full In, I was one of the youngest software engineers at SpaceX and also launched my own ed-tech products. Entrepreneurial at heart, I enjoy talking to other founders about the hard technical problems they’re solving and the unique market opportunities they’ve identified.
After graduating from the University of Texas at Austin (Hook ‘em), I spent 3 years at Strategy and Accenture focused on M&A, from pre-deal diligence to post merger integration strategy. Projects included integration strategy at a $33 billion biotech merger and due diligence for a $15 billion luxury retail merger. Now I am focusing my knowledge and expertise to help dedicated founders successfully grow their companies.
I love working with entrepreneurs to reshape industries through technology. Before working with Full In Partners, I spent three years at Notch Partners, where I worked at the intersection of private equity buyout investors and technology CEOs developing proprietary investment theses and deal ideas. I’m a proud graduate of Davidson College (Go Wildcats) and am an avid fan of Florida’s many underachieving sports teams.
Little did I know that a wonderful friendship would turn into such an exciting adventure. With a vast Human Resource background and a passion for always acquiring knowledge, the team at Full In tasked me with building and managing the firm's Human Resources department where we are the Keepers of the Culture. Never in my wildest dreams would I have thought I’d be this happy.
I first learned how to build companies from the ground up at a tech incubator in Boston. I continued exploring the intersection of technology and finance by helping to develop software that powers the daily investments and research at Bridgewater Associates. Now, I'm combining those experiences and moving from building technology to make investments to making investments in great technologies.
A successful political campaign my junior year of college taught me what a team of just 50 dedicated people can accomplish. I jumped into VC because I was excited by what teams were accomplishing in the technological realm, and after some time at ICONIQ Capital and a stint on the ground at Trade Informatics, I joined Full In to help it achieve its mission of empowering founders.
Whoever knows the rules best, plays the game best. This is why I became a lawyer and dedicated 10+ years advising multinational companies on their cross-border deals and structuring financial transactions. Now, after meeting the Full In family, a family that truly puts the entrepreneurs primero, I am ever-inspired to put my legal skills towards helping up-and-comers play their best game without feeling hindered by rules.
I grew up in a college town dominated by hospitals and health insurance companies but was raised in a tech household, so my childhood could really be described by Wired magazine, clinical research, and modeling kits. My introduction to startups was through SaaS platforms and digital health, but I quickly became interested in the impact of other emerging technologies as they started to shape formerly non evolving industries.
I have 25 years of experience in business management, spanning 3 continents and 5 languages — the first half spent as an executive of companies like GE, the second launching startups and growing digital operations. I have served multiple times as CEO, turning around a couple of SME’s and managing operations of up to 3,000 people. I am a scholar of the common patterns on the path from startup to grown-up, and believe success is largely designed into organisations.
