Entrepreneur in Residence

I’m most excited about the moments of creation that happen early in the life of a product or company.

Why Venture Capital?

I’m most excited about the moments of creation that happen early in the life of a product or company. Working with the Costanoa team and the entrepreneurs we support is a great way to share in that spark on a daily basis.

Experience

I’ve spent nearly 30 years delivering developer - and DevOps - focused products and technologies, including .NET, Azure, Visual Studio, SQL Server, OpenStack, Cloud Foundry, and Puppet, in general management, product, and engineering leadership roles. I’ve also been a founder/CEO and early employee of startups, from “day 0” through IPO.

Education

- B.S. in Computer Science from Rice University

Outside of Work

First and foremost, I’m a husband and father of three - ages 22, 20, and 17. I’ve been practicing Shaolin Kung-Fu for well over a decade, and am currently working towards my 4th degree black belt. I’m also an avid downhill skier, and spent over 20 days on the slopes last winter (pre-COVID).
