I love to see great products developed and deployed.

I spent 22 years as an operator in a number of verticals, and now I focus on advising our portfolio companies in product management, engineering, analytics, and design. 

Great products win business.

I’ve worked in almost every corner of fintech – digital banking and lending, mortgage origination and sourcing, D2C student lending, asset management, card issuing, and payment processing — and that was the through line in every area.  

Small talk cheat sheet:

Snowboarding, hiking, golfing, cooking, tacos, mediocre chess. 

I’m happiest when I’m deep in my work.

Fintech, and everything it touches, is in the midst of a massive evolution. I love seeing the change happening in this industry in real time. It’s exciting to be a part of it.
