I am the CEO and co-founder of SeedInvest. Prior to the passage of the JOBS Act, I supported The Startup Exemption, the nonprofit responsible for bringing the concept of Equity Crowdfunding to Washington, DC. After the passage of the JOBS Act, I co-founded the Crowdfunding Professional Association and currently serve as an Executive Board Member and the Chair of the Education and Training Committee. I also serve as a Board Member of the Crowdfund Intermediary Regulatory Advocates group and as a Co-Chair of the Crowdfund Portals Committee. I co-founded SeedInvest because I saw the need for a better way to connect entrepreneurs and investors. On the entrepreneurial side, I previously founded multiple startups. On the investor side, I worked at Carlson Capital, Wellspring Capital Management and Lehman Brothers in New York City where I invested in, financed and managed dozens of private and public businesses. Whenever given the chance, I enjoy traveling and have been to 77 countries. I received an MBA in Entrepreneurial Management from The Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania and a BBA in Finance and Accounting from the University of Wisconsin-Madison.
