I live in the San Francisco Bay Area and invest in technology companies.
I am a Founding Partner at Spero Ventures and invest in the things that make life worth living – well-being, work and purpose, and human connections.
I previously oversaw product and design for First Look Media and held several leadership roles at eBay, including vice president of product marketing where I was responsible for business and marketing leadership of all aspects of buyer and seller products, the eBay Developer’s Program, and Private Marketplaces. During my time at eBay, I also ran the global Product Management and Product Strategy teams. Prior to eBay, I was vice president, e-commerce at NextCard (a pioneering online credit card company) and did stints in consulting and operations.
I am a filmmaker. I’ve written and directed several short films including “Waking Jed,” a segment featuring Academy Award® nominees James Franco and Jessica Chastain that is part of the omnibus feature film “The Color of Time,” which premiered at the Rome Film Festival 2012 and that had a theatrical release in the US in 2014.
I have an MBA from Harvard Business School, a BA in Economics from Stella Maris College, Madras University, and an MFA from the grad film program at NYU’s Tisch School of the Arts.
I love driving on 280, chocolate, and the Oxford comma.
