What I Do
As a member of Cisco Investments team, I help source interesting tech startups that have long-term vision and are synergetic to our key business units. I also support execution for investments and acquisitions that broadly align with Cisco's long-term strategy.
What I’m Passionate About
I’m passionate about working with startups that pair ambition and long-term vision with strategic planning and execution.
I’m a huge sports fan, especially of UFC and NFL, and music enthusiast. My favorite team is Seahawks and I play piano and attend music festivals for hobbies.
My proudest moment since joining Cisco was help building the entire Cloud and Compute pipeline from scratch and co-leading the coverage initiative across the Enterprise Networking and Cloud domain, fostering relationships with CEOs and senior executives and bringing many fascinating start-ups that are relevant to our business units.
I love getting lost in a good book, especially stories of founders building companies from scratch. It’s what first inspired me to get into venture capital.
Perseverance and discipline are two of my core values. They have allowed me to develop healthier habits and are key drivers of my career achievements to date.
Where I’ve Been
Before coming on board with Cisco, I advised clients as an investment banker and built a strong foundation of knowledge through capital raising and advisory activities at Société Générale.
Where I Learned
I earned my BA from the University of California, San Diego, where I studied International Business. While there, I took leadership roles in multiple business organizations to improve financial literacy on campus.
