What I Do
My role with Cisco Investments allows me to be at the forefront of technology development, where I help connect businesses with the people and products they need to scale and succeed.
What I’m Passionate About
I love working with founders who are passionate about their products or services – innovators with a competitive differentiator and a story with which buyers can relate.
In life, yoga is like a supplement for the mind. It helps me remember where I am, not where I think I should be.
When I’m not in the office, I love spending time with my family. To me, family isn’t just important – it’s everything.
I love watching Formula 1 races. In some respects, race car drivers are like startup founders. They know that taking risks is part of the game, but they minimize those risks with unwavering focus and a dynamic team behind them.
Where I’ve Been
My love for technology began early in my career as a network engineer. I nurtured that love and was able to share it with others after accepting a role in training and curriculum development. From there, I moved into business development to affect change and help newer technologies gain traction and growth. With those experiences under my belt, Venture Capital was the natural next step in my career.
Where I Learned
My time in college had a huge impact on my career trajectory. I graduated from Midwestern State University with a Bachelor of Business Administration and a focus on Computer and Information Systems Security. My post-graduate degree came in the form of an MBA from Georgia College & State University, where I learned the nuances involved with Business Administration.
