I'm one of the Principals and founders of Evergreen Innovation Partners


I am both a Principal and Chief Product Scout for Evergreen Innovation Partners. I have 3 issued patents to my credit and have been a serial entrepreneur for the past decade (3 companies launched; over $500m in value creation for shareholders). I've raised over $30m in venture capital over the years and have experience with both private equity investors, corporate investors and M&A. I received my MBA from the Kellogg Graduate School of Management, graduated cum laude from Northwestern School of Law (concentration in IP law), and received my Bachelor of Arts from Northwestern University. In prior lives I have worked for Bell Atlantic (where I was youngest Director-level executive in the company's history), the law firm of Skadden Arps, Slate, Meagher & Flom, and management consultancies William M. Mercer and The Business Development Group. I try to read over 100 books a year and keep up with my family on the ski slopes, tennis court and golf course.
