Since joining General Catalyst in 2013, I've focused on making early stage investments & work closely with portfolio companies including: Cadre, Major League Hacking, Mark43, Outdoor Voices, Ro, & Rebag. Other investments I have supported include Circle, Freebird, Giphy, Jet.com (acquired by Walmart), & Workflow (acquired by Apple).
In addition, I co-founded & oversee Rough Draft Ventures, through which General Catalyst invests in promising university entrepreneurs. With a portfolio of over 100 startups we've backed on college campuses, RDV has expanded access to capital & mentorship for student entrepreneurs across the country. It's incredibly rewarding to work with first-time CEOs as I am passionate about empowering high-potential founders early in their careers.
I graduated from Harvard College with an A.B. in Applied Mathematics & Secondary in Computer Science. While on campus, I co-founded Harvard Ventures & HackHarvard: two student-led organizations that build community around engineers & future founders. I grew up in NYC & am a proud alum of Stuyvesant High School.
