I am a corporate lawyer and a partner with Gunderson Dettmer in Silicon Valley. My practice consists of representing venture backed technology companies at every stage from 2 founders with a deck to publicly traded companies. I also represent VC's and angels in their investments in portfolio companies. I was born in Peru, grew up in Chicago and am a Duke and Cal alum. I live in Silicon Valley with my wife, our 3 kids and assorted cats and dogs. I'm passionate about travel, cycling, running, music and the environment. I recently rode my bike from Eureka to San Francisco to raise money and awareness for climate change issues.
