  • Entrepreneur in Residence, Next Coast Ventures
  • Austin, Texas
I help grow software and tech-enabled businesses. I've been both an operator and a venture capitalist, accelerating growth at all stages from founding through IPO. I've led teams in product management, sales and marketing, business development, finance, operations, and international expansion. I love helping others discover and realize their potential.

When not doing that, I enjoy being a father and husband as well as running, cooking, and playing poker.
