I’ve always enjoyed technology. When I was a kid I started out modding video games, jailbreaking my iPod Touch, and building gaming computers. I somehow decided to study finance in college, but venture has given me the chance to blend my interests in tech and finance, which share a common idea – finding problems to solve. I love having the opportunity to meet smart founders everyday who are working on solving big problems, and partnering with them to work together over the long term.
Prior to Costanoa, I was a growth investor at Insight Partners, looking at application software and biotechnology. Before that, I spent time in investment banking at SunTrust Robinson Humphrey (Truist) and YellowCard, the largest cryptocurrency exchange on the African continent, started by a fellow Auburn alum.

Outside of Work
I’m a creature of habit - I’ve been obsessed with working out as far back as I remember. Lifting, rugby, and jiu-jitsu are my preferred pastimes, and when I’m not doing those I’m practicing guitar, cooking, or reading.
