Expertise

My work in the mobility world landed me a position at VegasTechFund making investments in companies that are leading the mobility industry. I am now an Associate at the fund working with the General Partners on fund operations, deal sourcing/closing and portfolio company support.

I Co-Founded and Headed up Product at SHIFT, a membership-based mobility company with a mission to connect people to the places and experiences they care about. The promise: have you on your way in 5 minutes.

I Co-Founded Work In Progress, the startup hub in downtown Las Vegas. Work In Progress is the first company to bring coworking, mentorship, classes and workshops to downtown Las Vegas.

Before venturing into the exciting world of entrepreneurship and investing, I worked at Zappos.com as a Software Engineer and Senior Manager of Campus Operations and Development. I led the operations team and LEED Gold development of Zappos.com's new headquarters in downtown Las Vegas. It was an entire remodel of three buildings, with a total of over 250,000 square feet, spread across six acres.
