What I Do
As a senior associate with Cisco Investments, I help search for founders that know how to think big and solve problems. When I do, I work with them to scale their vision and change the world for the better.
What I’m Passionate About
I’m passionate about working with startup founders who have the confidence to foster progress within their industry and the humility to recognize when adjustments are needed.
If I’m not working, I’m probably trekking over the river and through the woods on a hiking adventure.
I believe that invention and innovation are the building blocks of positive change.
A collaborative mindset is something I’m consciously working toward in both my personal and professional life.
Seeing a VC process through to the end – from thesis creation to funding investment – feels better than scratching that itch in the middle of your back that you can only reach with a pencil.
Where I’ve Been
After several years with J.P. Morgan and GCA Advisors, supporting tech startups and guiding them through the world of venture capital and M&A comes naturally. Years of hard work have culminated in my current role at Cisco, where I focus on investment and acquisition opportunities in the Collaboration space.
Where I Learned
I graduated from New York University, Stern School of Business with a B.S. in Finance, and a B.S./M.S. in Accounting. Boring majors to some, but perfect for me, especially given my current career. As a wise person once said, “Different strokes for different folks.”
