Why Venture Capital?

During my years working at startups, I had the opportunity to meet many people from the venture capital community and was intrigued by their world. After working in venture and private equity for several years, I realized that I enjoy being part of a team that supports entrepreneurs with new ideas and challenges.


After a decade of working at tech startups that got acquired by bigger companies such as Informatica and Intuit, I moved on to contracting in mostly financial services industry. TPG, Fox Paine, Felicis, and CRV are some of the places where I learned a lot.

Outside of Work

My two rescued dogs bring joy to my life. Their unconditional love inspires my support for animal rights and I’ve been a pescatarian for three years. I always make time for my friends and family, but if it’s football season, they know when not to call me. I was born in Thailand and raised in San Francisco. Ft. Funston and Half Moon Bay are some of my favorite places to spend my time.
