What I Do

I have been a VC for almost 15 years and have helped build many successful companies. I have "seen the movie" before many times and can help guide the founders. Plus, I have been a successful angel investor for over 18 years, so can bring the benefit of that set of experiences as well.


I am the founder of seed stage venture firm, Streamlined Ventures which is investing actively. Over the last 18 years, I have invested in over 60 companies as an active angel investor, many of which have gone on to become significant successes. My areas of interest range from mobile web, Web 2.0, enterprise computing and the infrastructure technologies underlying those spaces.

Until a couple of years ago, I was a senior partner and helped build Globespan Capital Partners, a leading venture capital firm. There I led investments in many companies and was an active member of their boards. In addition, I also helped my colleagues at the firm evaluate and invest in close to 150 other companies.

Prior to that I helped build FAC/Equities, a prominent investment banking and research boutique during the 1990s. During that time, I was named a Wall Street All Star by the Wall Street Journal and was recognized as one of the top research analysts on Wall Street by Fortune magazine.
