After many years working at startups to get them off the ground and scaled, I am excited to apply my expertise to many companies and not just one.

Why Venture Capital?

After many years working at startups to get them off the ground and scaled, I am excited to see things from the investor side and to be able to apply my expertise to many companies and not just one. I love Costanoa's approach to deeply partnering with outstanding founders.

Experience

I've spent most of my career building and leading engineering teams. I spent four years at Uber during its most intense years of growth, first leading the Data Infrastructure team and then starting and building the Machine Learning Platform (Michelangelo). I left Uber to start Tecton which was inspired by our work on Michelangelo at Uber. Before Uber, I led engineering and data science teams at a number of startups, focused on machine learning, data infrastructure, and security.

Education

- B.A. with Honors from Stanford University

Outside of Work

I spend as much time as I can with my two kids. I also love to bike, ski, run, and read a lot.
