I am an entrepreneur at heart who has been working in and with startups for my entire career. I'm interested in turning huge ideas into reality.

I am Managing Director at Techstars running the Retail Accelerator in partnership with Target.

I am also the Founder and Managing Director for Matchstick Ventures and Co-Founder of Beta.MN and Twin Cities Startup Week.

Prior to Matchstick, I founded University Guide, LLC – a university-based publication business – that was eventually sold in 2008.
