Why Venture Capital?
An entrepreneur’s best friend is leverage. The best leverage comes from having the right partners, including your team, and by extension, your investors.
I was the first employee at Spire, where I led Operations. We took Spire from zero to space in under 12-months, so I know what it means to push inch by inch, against all odds — and what it takes to manage hyper growth. I was able to touch virtually every part of the business, from customer development to government contracting to rocket launches. Since leaving Spire, I have helped countless founders to operationalize strategy and put the right systems in place to handle hyper growth.

Outside of Work
Outside of the office, I enjoy spending time with my wife and beagle. Most common pastimes include: hiking; biking; traveling (secretly on a mission to visit every country, or close to it); and a whole lot of reading.
