Thanks for visiting,

I’m an early-stage venture investor and a former Obama appointee and government official who helped deliver public capital and support to the tech, startup, and venture ecosystems.  I'm avid writer and speaker, primarily on the intersection of technology and public policy and venture capital related issues. 

 

In addition to my “formal” professional background, I engage in consulting and volunteer work that spans diverse profiles of companies, projects and areas. Most of my independent work centers on helping startups navigate business challenges (venture fundraising, business strategy, hiring, and market analysis) and government challenges (navigating regulatory issues, building public private partnerships, and securing government funding). I also stay involved in civic work through my event series, Early Stage Politics, and sitting on non-profit boards.

Recent Projects:

Founded Early Stage Politics, a new event series to convene the venture capital and startup communities with early-career politicians running for public office.
