It's all about organization and defining a process. "The devil is in the details", and it is the details that makes all the difference.

 We developed Startup Rounds to improve online engagement for competitions. We ended up with a cutting edge software solution for administering business competitions, innovation challenges, hackathons, and incentive based events. The best part of my experiences were the great institutions, businesses, and people I enjoyed collaborating with. Here are just a few:

General Catalyst is a prominent Vanture Capital firm that has managed eight venture capital funds totaling approximately $3.75 billion in capital commitments. I was hired as a summer MBA intern to manage their summer intern class of 15 undergraduate students to support their portfolio companies, and enhance their SEO. It was a pleasure to be included in VC prospecting, investor pitches, reviews and evaluations. The majority of the summer was spent working with the portfolio company CoachUp:

About Me

  I like to surround myself with passionate people who are committed to following through. It is teamwork that makes "great" possible.

For someone who is always on the move, I like to dig into things. As a tennis player, I always enjoy tactics, and finding solutions to win even when an opponent is physically superior.  In chess, thinking ahead is only part of the battle, I enjoy the dynamic aspect of how the pieces can work together over space and time. Sports and business have many overlapping characteristics, including hustle.  While I am a family man in love with sports, I apply myself in the same manner to any business or technical challenge, to dig in and become a domain expert.
