Partner @Lux Capital. Early stage tech investor. Previously VC @General Catalyst Partners, co-founder @Rough Draft Ventures, MIT PhD.

What I Do

I am an early-stage VC in techn. Partner at Lux Capital, currently investing out of our 3rd fund ($245m) in technology, energy and healthcare sectors. Previously I was an investor at General Catalyst Partners and an entrepreneur. Spent 15 years in Boston and now in Palo Alto.


I invest in founders and startups trying to solve important problems, from consumer/lifestyle companies to robotics, computational imaging, big data analytics, energy and healthcare IT.

Not a momentum investor, but want to bet on big ideas that when they win, win big. I prefer technical teams that have depth of understanding of the space, and businesses that can truly differentiate themselves in the marketplace over the long term.

I have been fortunate to support several first-time entrepreneurs. I also co-founded and to support young technical founders.

What I'm Looking For

Brilliant entrepreneurs who think creatively about solving important problems, and recruit strong teams that execute on their vision. I invest across technology, energy & healthcare sectors. Fund investments range from $100k to $10m. Personal investments may be smaller.
