I help founders of mission-driven tech startups grow their personal and collective impact.

My practice is built on all three pillars of my career:

Operator. I had a 15-year career as a founder and product leader at venture-backed and non-profit startups. My last company helped unlock $100 million in funding for young people tackling the world's wicked problems.

Strategic advisor. I've advised and mentored dozens of startups within the Union Square Ventures, Betaworks, and Techstars networks since 2011.

Coach. My coaching practice is informed by the methods that helped me most: Internal Family Systems, the Enneagram, Tibetan Buddhism, Positive Intelligence, and most importantly, open-hearted listening. My own coaching journey has unfolded thanks to the help of the many guides in my life – coaches, healers, mentors, and spiritual teachers. I will complete my coaching training in early 2024 through Upbuild.

For the whole spiel, you can find me on LinkedIn :)

Working together

I offer a few different engagement models that vary in depth and duration. Those include 1:1 Coaching, Embedded Strategic Advising,‍ and ‍Portfolio Support.

‍All engagements start the same way: with an informal chat where we can get to know each other better and discover if there's a fit.
