Key Accomplishments

I'm looking for my next challenge and start up opportunity, working with a great team in the Seattle area. I'm passionate about bringing ideas into life and filling in gaps at an existing start up, new startup or even just building an idea. I'm open to wearing many different hats and have the experience to do so. I have business and financial management experience as well as operational and supply chain experience in F500 technology companies. I also currently study Human Centered Design at UW and love working on design-related projects. Key partners I would love to have would be someone with strong business development skills and software/hardware engineering skills.

My key accomplishments include a patent in wireless wearables, nomination as Kaplan's Most Promising Campus CEO and 1st place in the Concept2Venture Business Competition. I also have a MBA from the Univ of Chicago as well as a background working for a funded start up in the past.

How I like to work with people As a Cofounder

I'd love co-founders who are equally committed and passionate about their ideas. This means putting in equal contributions of time and capital. I also think that a little humor and some commonality of experiences is also important. This is supposed to be fun!

As an Advisor

I'm happy to provide advice and guidance to anyone who asks. However, I should emphasize that I know more about breadth than depth.
