“My background in management consulting helped me hone my instinct for identifying compelling markets, macro-trends, and business models that enable companies to grow, thrive, and change the world.”

Companies and technologies with the potential for disruption are fascinating, and I spend my days identifying interesting businesses, building a better understanding of the market, and talking to dynamic, talented, and driven entrepreneurs and CEOs.

My current field of focus is healthcare tech where I work to find businesses that can reduce the cost of healthcare, improve patient outcomes, and streamline healthcare in a rapidly changing environment.

My first professional position out of college was in management consulting, working primarily in the areas of aviation, basic industries, life sciences, and private equity. These experiences piqued my interest in technology investing. I graduated from Harvard, where I was president of the Harvard Mock Trial Association, business manager for Harvard Model Congress (a non-profit focused on civic engagement), and won the Wendell Philips Memorial Prize for best public speaker in my class and the Philip Washburn Prize for the best history thesis.

I was born in Georgia and lived there until my family moved to Hawaii. I’m still adjusting to Boston winters that can dump ninety inches of snow in record time. In my spare time I enjoy following Atlanta sports teams, hiking, martial arts, volunteering, studying history, taking road trips, and cooking a good steak.
