“The most founder friendly investor on the cap table”
I strive to be one of the first checks (day 0) and leverage my network to bring in other strategic capital and resources in an advisory role. For the founders I work with, I am often described as their company’s #1 fan, providing continuous support and dedication for the short, medium, and long-term.

Over invest in your deck, both design + content. It's an easy way to stand out amongst the hundreds of other startups I review and shows the care, time and attention you've already put towards your business.
My focus is geared towards areas where I am most passionate and have an informational AND educational advantage: Consumer (CPG, eCommerce infrastructure) + PropTech + Future of Work, seed stage.
I personally experienced the complete life cycle of building a company: from identifying a problem/market opportunity, coming up with the “idea”, to painstakingly developing a business plan and road-map (both in my head and on paper).
I've been in a founder's shoes: from leaving my stable job, asking friends and family for money ($2MM raised from 30+ investors), to hiring and scaling a team, and more. I've also experienced similar ups and downs: from launching to widespread industry acclaim, countless press articles, gaining tens of thousands of users, iterating & pivoting 3x, pitching hundreds of VC's in NYC & Silicon Valley, to failing to raise a successive round of funding, and ultimately winding down the company (and moving past failure).
Those experiences, among others, give me a major competitive advantage over other investors: founder empathy and unique understanding of the startup journey.
I grew up in NYC - I love the energy and opportunity. However, I invest all over the US and you can most certainly build a GREAT company from anywhere. My outlook in NYC tech is that it will continue to attract incredible people, founders and talent and I plan to live and grow here for years to come.
