Full bio

I am the founding partner of ff Venture Capital, and I have been an early-stage investor since late 1999. At ff Venture Capital, we champion technology founders who are changing the way we interact with the world. Our portfolio companies receive ongoing, customized support from the ff Acceleration Team, who provide a full range of services in accounting and finance, PR and branding, engineering, recruiting, community management and business development. There is a lot of hype out there. Instead, we believe in results. Prior to founding ff Venture Capital, I worked at Goldman Sachs for 21 years in a variety of roles that involved technology development, reengineering, and capital markets. I have served as a director of over 35 companies and an investor in more than 76 companies, including Cornerstone OnDemand (CSOD on NASDAQ), Indiegogo, Ionic Security, Klout, SkyCatch, Plated, 500px, Distil Networks, and Bottlenose.
