MEET THE TEAM

I have been working for software focused VC/PE firms for most of my career and have managed funds ranging from $40M to $5B. It’s fun being surrounded by people who dream big and are changing the world through technology. While I am a bean counter by trade, my true passion is focusing on companies and the people that build them. Helping to foster a culture of inclusion, curiosity, and respect is my ultimate goal.
