I’m a NYC-based full-time sector-
agnostic angel/seed investor in tech startups, including Wish, Heroku, 280N.


I am currently consulting with PACT pharma, a cancer immunotherapy biotech company. I also started and am chariman of Sprink — Enterprise Whiteboarding for Distributed Teams. Previously, I was an entrepreneur in residence at Benchmark Capital in San Francisco. Prior to that I led Twitter’s New York engineering office and managed a number of consumer engineering projects including Moments. Before that, I was CEO and founder of Mitro, a startup that exited to twitter,
and an engineer at Google from
2002-2009 where I build a number of distributed systems and infrastructure systems.

I often write articles. For instance, I fixed a Linux kernel bug in the veth drive, I discovered that NYC’s Taxi and Limousine Commission released improperly anonymized taxi logs, and I analysed how employees collaborated across sites at Twitter.


I’m very interested in biotech, data privacy, machine learning, telepresence, and distributed systems. Please email me.
