Your successes are our successes, and your failures are our failures.

Quotation Mark

I joined M13 in the very early days. The team had this ambition to build a different type of platform one that better matched the partnership style that entrepreneurs needed in today’s fast-changing startup environment but what was even more inspiring to me was the team’s diversity of experience and drive to make it happen.


We all came from backgrounds where we had to prove ourselves. And now, we had the chance to use these experiences to dig into all sides of an issue with a first-hand perspective.


And dig in, we did. We set out to make each part of the venture experience better. Finding entrepreneurs. Proactive involvement after investing. Communicating with our LPs. Everything.


Then, instead of retrofitting an existing practice to match today’s new investing environment, we built one from the ground up. Now, I’m excited to help execute on that vision (also known as “the fun part”).


M13 was built around the goal of being a trusted partner. Not just someone you call on once a quarter for a board meeting, or someone who simply makes one introduction to a supplier, but rather a real partner who teams up with you your successes are our successes, and your failures are our failures.


We’ll know we’ve done our jobs when our founding partners not only have successful exits, but choose us for their second venture. Their third. It’s way bigger than the “right now” for us.


I truly love working with entrepreneurs. It takes way more guts than I have to leave your stable job to build something you love, and it’s a privilege to be able to play even a small part in helping them reach their full potential.


I’m very fortunate to have assembled a diverse background in corporate M&A and venture. My previous roles have helped me develop the financial acumen and training needed to execute large and complicated transactions, but they’ve also given me the opportunity to work with hundreds of entrepreneurs and get to know their unique perspectives.


When you take some time to focus on others, it adds invaluable perspective. Making service a priority can make a massive difference for the way you view others, your work, and yourself.


My best advice? No job title or company name on a resume can beat being happy with what you do.
