I'm fascinated by founders and early team members who understand that the road to success isn't linear, yet go for it anyway.
I was originally drawn to fintech back in 2007 because of the belief that it’s the early innings of a multi-decade shift with the potential to disrupt the status quo worldwide. And I still believe this today. Having worked at companies across the entire startup lifecycle, I know how both fun and scary the earliest stages are. I’m fascinated by founders and early team members who understand that the road to success isn’t linear, yet go for it anyway. My ultimate goal is to help smooth the path to success for the courageous, naive, curious, and driven founders we partner with.
I joined Costanoa after spending 15 years in product management at companies like BlockFi, PayPal, Blispay, and BillMeLater. I'm thankful for my broad range of experience working across the startup lifecycle. Most of my work focused on helping build and launch 0-1 products with the goal of leveling the playing field for small businesses or consumers.

Outside of Work
My wife and I enjoy taking full advantage of the Florida sunshine. As cliche as it sounds, we love going on long walks by the beach. Most of my time indoors is spent spoiling our dog, working, or on the Peloton or Tonal. And since crypto is 24/7, I'm usually reading, listening, or talking about it during all of those activities.
