Presently, I lead the global financials/fintech practice at Vulcan Capital, the late Paul Allen's family office and invest in both public and private companies. My background includes a bachelors in Agriculture from the University of Arizona, an MBA from the University of Notre Dame; credit, banking and global markets experience at Bankers Trust, Union Bank; asset management in both a traditional bottom up and systematic quantitative strategies, as well as independent board work for small tech companies.
My interests extend across a broad array of innovative financial services and fintech companies at various stages, from pre-revenue development to late stage growth equity, as well as public companies doing interesting things in their respective space. Companies that offer, or are developing disruptive technology or services are interesting to me. My preference is that early stage technology or payments related products show some level of adoption as well. I am also interested in market making exchanges where technology drives scale and pricing. A solid management team is a must.
