I found, fund, and drive the creation of high growth companies, primarily in high-tech, and data driven areas. I love the ability to disrupt markets that haven't moved in years with the leverage of technology and intelligence. I have pursued this goal in a number of markets that include real estate, finance, big data analytics, energy, healthcare (ouch), defense and first responder technology.

I love the power of data and technology to transform the efficiency and profitability of almost any industry sector.

I am passionate about Startups and how they drive our economy and future. I am committed to supporting, mentoring and doing everything I can to help good startups become growing companies.
