Introduction

  • I work as a Venture Partner at Marin Digital Ventures since earlier this year.
  • Marin Digital Ventures is an investment firm that supports early stage digital asset companies and protocols (web3). We take a long-term, hands-on approach and truly partner with early founders to connect, build, and scale. Whether it's helping structure offerings or strategic guidance, MDV has a deep network in crypto/web3 and brings operational, engineering, and security related experience.
  • I currently live in Manhattan, NY as of Wednesday which is the first time I've ever lived outside of Southern California. I'm most recently from Los Angeles, CA.
  • I previously was the Director of Security at Gridspace for the last 2 years where I was the primary lead for security engineering, compliance, privacy, and risk. Before that I was a Software Engineer primarily working in DevOps, infrastructure, tooling, and automation. I've been in the startup space for about 7 years.
  • I went to UCLA for my undergrad in political science/public affairs and am currently attending Georgia Tech to get my masters in cybersecurity.
  • I was also an officer in the United States Army Reserves. I left the service in 2019 as a Captain.
