Full bio

As Director of Corporate Planning and Development, I've worked on a range of acquisitions including a broadcast TV station, an education lead generation company, and an online magazine. Additionally, I've done several early stage investments in promising start-ups on behalf of the Post Company. I focus on corp dev for the media side of the Washington Post Company and handle inbound inquiries and due diligence for digital media acquisitions, investments, joint ventures and strategic partnerships (related to and independent of our media divisions).

I also serve as the General Manager for WaPo Labs, which is the Post's corporate digital team focused on building innovative products for creating, distributing and monetizing news and information.

I grew up in San Jose, CA but left to go to Yale and then worked in NY for a few years at Goldman Sachs in their investment banking division. I returned to California to get an MBA at Stanford and did the reverse commute (again!) when I returned to the east coast to work at the Washinton Post Company in DC.
