About me & my work:

I head up the Exponential Conference Series at Singularity University at the NASA Research Park in Silicon Valley.

My background of leading, investing in, and advising technology and consumer product companies has enabled me to acquire a unique blend of operational, investment and entrepreneurial experience. I am passionate about people and ideas and have spent my life working to bring them together to help curate great opportunities and experiences.

Prior to my current role, I have been: Entrepreneur in Residence and then Venture Associate for Foundation Capital; Principal at Maveron (a consumer focused venture capital firm that was started by Starbucks Founder Howard Schultz and Dan Levitan, an investment banker); Founder & CEO of Phix (energy capsules); President of Tonic (online inspiration company); and Founder of Santa.com (family-oriented gift registry).

Among my most unusual accomplishments is that I created and popularized the wrap; yes, that burrito like thing, while at a 30 unit restaurant chain that I founded called World Wrapps.

I received my MBA from the Stanford Graduate School of Business and have a BA from University of California at Santa Barbara.
