While I’ve been involved with startups ever since founding my own software company in the mid 1990s, the bulk of my career has been defined by venture capital. In the early 2000s, I co-founded Pittsburgh-based VC firm, Birchmere Ventures.
Over the following 20+ years at Birchmere, we raised and invested six funds and our portfolio companies achieved a cumulative market valuation of $15 billion. Through those funds, I was fortunate to work with dozens of amazing entrepreneurs.
Throughout my career, my highest highs have come when lending a helping hand to well-deserving, high-achieving founders. My passion lies in watching others achieve success. Through Enjoy The Work, I am able to fulfill this passion by taking founder mentorship to a deeper level than I could in the VC world.
