I'm an entrepreneur and investor in New York City.

I'm a partner at Innovation Nest where I invest and work with early stage B2B software companies. I'm also a COO at Amicus, a social good Y Combinator startup in NYC, where I stay close to challenges of running a technology company in the US.

I previously co-founded Base CRM, Applicake and European Rails Conference Railsberry. I also started the Hive53 startup community and Mobile Mobile Conf. I'm also an advisor and investor in Unerdwear.com and Y Combinator alum.

Before I found myself wearing entrepreneur's shoes, I was on my way to become a high-energy physicist. Then I got into political science with a mission to fix the world. Finally, landed in in the world of tech.

I'm also a contemporary dancer, yogi, expert snowboarder and I'm slowly becoming a pro free-skier. I love velocity and the performing arts. I like to try new things.

I also love people, patterns, numbers, music and movies that tell simple stories. I'd love to choreograph something great one day. I tweet, sometimes blog and here's me talking.
