What I Do
As a VP at Cisco Investments, I lead a dedicated team of investors across Collaboration, Security, and Analytics domains, as well as the China region.
What I’m Passionate About
I’m passionate about working with founders that I admire. That means go-getters who are optimistic, energetic, and who live and breathe their company’s vision. Ultimately, I’m passionate about working with passionate people. I’m a firm believer that hard work and positivity pay dividends. That’s true for my team at Cisco Investments and for the exciting startups with whom we’re working.
Show me an idea that solves a real customer pain point. When you do that better than anyone else, you’ve got my attention.
