Entrepreneur & Investor

Chapter Board Members - Central Texas

I’m an entrepreneur and investor. I am Co-Founder of a Venture Capital firm in Austin, Texas called Next Coast Ventures. I also am Co-Founder of a Software Company called Nucleus Growth. Prior to this, I bought a small technology services company, ServiceSource, and ran it for 12 years, taking it from small startup to public company with over 3,000 employees around the world. I was also one of the first employees at a pioneer cloud services company called Opsware (then Loudcloud), that also went public. Before becoming an entrepreneur, I had (and thoroughly hated) jobs in investment banking and public accounting.
