Named 2013 Angel Investor of the year by the New England Venture Capital Association.
Over the past 20 years I've satisfied my career attention deficit disorder by helping start, fund or found more than 30 innovative companies that span enterprise software, internet, ecommerce and biotech.
Most recently I co-founded Tamr with my friend and partner Mike Stonebraker, PhD.
In 2005, Mike and I worked with a bunch of fantastic people to build a world-class database systems engineering team, a truly innovative product & a fantastic company @ Vertica.
Prior to Vertica, I was as a member of the startup team at Infinity Pharmaceuticals (NASDAQ: INFI) as the company raised $130M+, treated its’ first cancer patient & filed it's first IND.
Before Infinity, I served as a member of the core startup teams at Bowstreet (acquired by IBM) as well as pcOrder.com (NASDAQ: PCOR) and Trilogy.
