I am a serial entrepreneur and investor with roots in the Midwest, experience in Silicon Valley, and connections around the world. During that time, I created ShareThis, one of the most popular tools on the internet and it became one of the fastest-growing companies in the country.I have seen every side of a startup lifecycle: entrepreneur, venture investor, and fund manager, and in 2017 I founded Refinery Ventures, where we invest in early scale hypergrowth companies. Refinery Ventures is dedicated to bridging the gap and mentoring our teams between post-seed and Series A funding.
