I am a Co-Founder of True Ventures. I serve on the Board of Automattic (WordPress), Kurtosys, Stitch Labs, HelpShift, Inventables, and this company, about.me.

Prior, I founded Blacksmith Capital, an early stage seed investment fund. I've also been a General Partner at ABS Ventures and Weiss, Peck & Greer Venture Partners (now Lightspeed Ventures). I started my venture career at Summit Partners where I met some amazing people including my True Ventures co-founder, Jon Callaghan.

I'm a product of Oklahoma, a Stanford alum, I love art, travel and have been known to consume a Bordeaux or two. My favorite place outside of San Francisco is London.
