VC Principal @ Studio Management in San Francisco, CA

We’re a stage agnostic, data-driven family office looking to bring on our first hire to help us in our mission to influence the flow of capital into companies that improve society & push culture forward.

Prior to Studio, we built the fintech research platform Sentieo as a way to leverage data to generate alpha in the public markets. We’re now bringing that same data-driven analysis and workflow to the privates.

We invest opportunistically alongside a network of LPs from seed to growth-stage across a number of sectors including: tech, consumer, fintech, health and wellness, and cannabis.
