Bio
I am a co-founder and partner of NextView, a thematic, seed-stage venture capital fund. I try to spend as much time as possible working with entrepreneurs and investing in businesses that are trying to solve important problems for everyday people. I was previously a venture capitalist at Spark Capital, a leading venture capital firm focused on the intersection of media, technology, and entertainment. Before joining Spark Capital, I worked at Ebay, as the North America Business Unit owner for "Finding". In this role, I was involved in design and launch over 20 products that significantly enhanced Ebay's search, browse, and merchandising capabilities. Previously, I was a consultant at The Parthenon Group, a boutique strategy consulting firm and focused on the consumer and retail industries. Additionally, I have also held product management roles at Fidelity Investments, BzzAgent, and helped to found Letslink.jp, one of the first social networking sites outside of the United States. I've been blessed to have a wonderful wife and two daughters and spend most of my free time with them. I'm also a founding member of Highrock Church in Brookline, MA.
