Since the beginning of Q4 2006 I have been running a hedge fund called Inductive Capital that is focused on leveraging private market insights to improve public portfolio management.

Prior to Inductive, I was a venture capitalist with a focus on Infrastructure Software investments. Some of my VC investments include: Cyanea (sold to IBM), Datapower (sold to IBM), Dovebid (sold to Go Industry), LRN, Maaya (sold to Gold Systems), Stratify (sold to Iron Mountain) and United Devices (sold to Univa).

Before my VC days, I was an investment analyst on Wall Street. I started out at Piper Jaffray and from there went to Deutsche Morgan Grenfell and finally to Credit Suisse First Boston. On the street I covered the E-Commerce Infrastructure space as well as Online Trading.

I got started out in business at Booz Allen in NYC.


Outside of investing, my interests are Aviation Week & Space Technology, Golf, Skiing, and Texas Hold'em to name a few.
