Full bio

I run Corporate Development at Twitter. I love working with entrepreneurs and have tremendous respect for those who have the guts and the passion to leave behind the safety of a salary and a well-known brand to build something new. I tend to be most helpful in crystalizing a company's positioning and value proposition, hiring key employees through my network andmaking customer introductions. When I'm not working with entrepreneurs or buying companies for Twitter, I love learning about medical technology and healthcare informatics. Oh, I also love to eat :>) I've invested in companies including: Counsyl, Venture Beat, Get Satisfaction, and Tapulous
