Converge. Create. Elevate.


Founder and General Partner, Streamlined Ventures

I am a seasoned seed and angel investor, venture capitalist and entrepreneur with investment experience in nearly 350 companies. I am the founder of seed stage venture firm Streamlined Ventures that is focused on seed investing in applied data science and AI companies. We also invest in new computing models such as quantum computing, block chain based models, AR/VR and robotics. The firm leads or co-leads seed rounds in these spaces. In addition, over the last 18 years, I have seed/angel invested in nearly 150 companies. I also co-founded a full lifecycle investment firm called Cota Capital. Prior to that, I was a senior member of the investment team and helped build venture capital firm Globespan Capital Partners for 12 years. I had invested in numerous information technology and clean technology companies and served on their Boards of Directors. Many of these companies became highly successful. During my tenure at Globespan I helped my colleagues at the firm evaluate and invest in nearly 150 companies in IT, web, mobile web and cleantech spaces. Prior to Globespan I was a top ranked Wall Street analyst at First Albany and was recognized by the Wall Street Journal and Fortune magazine as a Wall Street All Star. I am a strong believer in the power of human ingenuity, especially when it is allowed to thrive in the context of an open, capitalist society. I thoroughly enjoy participating in all aspects of entrepreneurial value creation and the risk capital that is necessary to cultivate it.
