Most recently served as Co-Founder / CEO of Olla - an eCommerce platform powering top-cannabis retailers nationwide. During my time at Olla, our team facilitated over $2.4 billion in online orders, with a 32% platform conversion rate, 82% order completion rate, and processing over 30k orders daily.


Before Olla, I founded Fynd Labs, a LA-based innovation lab developing products to connect the physical and digital aspects of consumer retail.


I completed my undergrad studies @ Boston University, with a year exchange in Milan at Bocconi Univeristy, studying international business. When not building, advising or investing, I can be found in the gym, in a river fly-fishing, out in a marsh duck hunting, or walking our pup with my fiancé.
