Thank you for visiting this blog. All opinions expressed are mine and mine alone.
I spent eight years helping industrial customers commercialize new, high performance products in the engineered fabrics supply chain. The last two years I spent as CEO – I resigned in 2017 when the requirements of supporting a global business with a plant in Eastern Europe while living in the US created too much of a demand on my personal life. I took a position with a large business in a space I care about helping them commercialize new products.
My career has shifted twice between finance and industrial technology. I was previously an early employee of a $2 Bn private equity fund of funds where I invested in and served on boards of many private equity and venture capital funds.
My undergraduate degree is from the University of Virginia (1998 BA in Biology and Economics) and I also completed an MBA from the University of North Carolina (2005 MBA in Entrepreneurship and Marketing). I hold the CFA and LIFA designations and have significant international work experience (China, Australia, Eastern Europe).
I have been active with a number of start-up and early stage investing activities including the The Startup Factory in Durham, NC before its closure in 2016.
