Strategy + Venturing

Technology has always fascinated me and I find myself driven by a curiosity to understand all the new and cutting edge solutions being developed. This curiosity has led me to seek exposure to different industries and problems throughout my career. I love hearing passionate founders talk about the problems they are solving and how their technology will meet the needs of a certain market.

At Technexus I’m focused on our Audio, Media and Future of Work investments. In this role, I help source new deals, perform diligence on potential investments, and support our portfolio.

Prior to Technexus, I worked at Deloitte Consulting where I focused on helping CPG companies innovate and grow. Originally hailing from Ireland, I studied Nanoscience at Trinity College Dublin and received a Naughton Fellowship to study a Masters in Technology Entrepreneurship at the University of Notre Dame. This Masters program really ignited my passion for startups, both by working with some, and attempting to start my own.

Outside of work you can find me getting lost in a good sci fi book, attending a theatre or musical production or strolling along the Chicago Lakefront.
