Vice President, Strategy + Venturing
I have a passion for solving problems, continuing to learn, and pushing my own boundaries. I love building the connections between technology and industry and defining pathways for new innovations to solve some of the biggest challenges we face today.
At TechNexus, I partner with corporates to enhance and execute their strategy through early-stage venture capital and engagement with the venture ecosystem. Our partnerships and investments span a broad set of industries but all center around creating sustainable growth for both our corporate partners and portfolio ventures.
Before joining TechNexus, I worked at companies both large and small. I spent time at strategy consulting firms, financial services firms, and have been on the venture side of the business, having served in a key role at a start-up that built a marketplace for small and medium business lending. This breadth of experience has been valuable in the work we do at TechNexus
I received an MBA from the New York University Stern School of Business and a BS in General Engineering from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.
Outside of work, you’ll find me buying and managing real estate across Chicago, traveling, and working with different organizations to support the next generation of innovators.
