My work in the mobility world landed me a position at VTF Capital making investments in companies that are leading the mobility industry. I am now the Portfolio Manager at the fund doing everything I can, internally and externally, to support the 100+ companies in the portfolio.

I Co-Founded and Headed up Product at SHIFT, a membership-based mobility company with a mission to connect people to the places and experiences they care about. The promise: have you on your way in 5 minutes.

I Co-Founded Work In Progress, the startup hub in downtown Las Vegas. Work In Progress is the first company to bring co-working, mentorship, classes, and workshops to Las Vegas.

Before venturing into the exciting world of entrepreneurship and investing, I worked at Zappos.com as a Software Engineer and Senior Manager of Campus Operations and Development. I led the operations team and LEED Gold development of Zappos.com's new headquarters in downtown Las Vegas. It was an entire remodel of three buildings, with a total of over 250,000 square feet, spread across six acres. You can see it for yourself by taking one of their world class tours.

When I'm not working, I can be found with my beautiful wife Kara, amazing twins Atlas and Skye, Audio doggie, friends, and family exploring the world and living life to the fullest.

For me, life is all about setting lofty goals and working hard until they are completed. It's what keeps me going on the tough days.

Cheers to dreaming up big goals and crushing them!
