Experienced early-stage operator & investor

Founder

Started two businesses right after getting my Master’s from USC— DateSimply (R.I.P.) and RewardTag.com. I learned the hard way through DateSimply that some acquisition offers should be accepted. I took that lesson to heart and after distributing 1M+ RewardTag units, sold it to one of our clients.

Operator

Ran the CA Markets for Lyft starting in 2014 which accounted for 50% of all Lyft rides at the time. Helped launch and scale local teams nationally as Lyft grew from 250 to 2500 employees. I left in 2017 to work on the future of autonomous transportation at Zoox and later took a five-person team from Seed through its Series A and eventual acquisition at BlackBird.
