in pursuit of all that is good and worth fighting for

I’m a New Yorker turned San Francisco-based early-stage investor in frontier technologies transforming traditional industries. I love backing founders early and supporting them for years to come.

To date:
• Venture Partner at Ridge, an early-stage venture firm investing in experienced founders building enterprise software and developer tools
• Partner at On Deck‘s ODX, investing in the world’s most talented, ambitious founders
• Principal at Bloomberg Beta, an early-stage venture capital firm focused on the future of work — where I invested in workflow automation, machine learning tools, and robotics

I believe in a techno-optimistic future — in founders building enduring companies that create step changes in human agency. If you’re building something that’s turning science fiction into reality, reach me here.

In a nutshell
I write here about startups, venture capital, and the impact of technology on society. I share a subset of these posts more broadly on my Substack or Medium. I’ve been creating online for over a decade and love experimenting with mediums — short-form audio/video, podcasts, live demos to explore how we use and embed technology into our day-to-day.

In my spare time, you can find me building communities, curating my information diet, and chasing type two fun.

I enjoy:
💭 big, random ideas
📖 reading
💬 quality conversation
