I left ‘institutional VC’ life because I wanted to serve founders in the capacity of coach, advisor, mentor, and/or unwavering supporter. That's now the role I play.

I actively make angel investments out of a small fund primarily focused on pre-seed and seed stage technology companies. I have a slight bias to invest in companies based in New York City though I'm geo agnostic. I believe great founders, ideas and companies can emerge anywhere.

I made a deeply conscious decision to invest as an "army of one" rather than as a Partner at ‘X Fund.’ I don’t have partners. I move quickly. I have no overhead. I work one-on-one with founders. I focus on management, leadership, and personal growth. I prioritize relationships over transactions. I have a long-term horizon. I don't have ownership targets. That’s all by design.

I invest in technology companies who aspire to push humanity forward. More specifically, I focus on human potential, progress and productivity. I fundamentally believe that I have a responsibility to be an enabler and supporter of positive change and impact. I want to partner with those who are strongly guided by their mission, vision, and values.

When I get involved, I try to be helpful mostly around leadership, organizational development, personal productivity, self-care, go-to-market and fundraising. I strive to help founders become extraordinary leaders of highly effective and humane organizations. This is my value add and focus.
