I’m driven by the good that companies can do when they apply their products to philanthropic aims. I began working on Wall Street helping big investment banks with their legal work on IPOs and mergers. After four years, I discovered home is in northern California. There I shifted toward helping emerging technology companies, and those funders taking risks to fund them. I spent too much time in the office, making partner in prestigious law firms and as a start-up co-founder (earliest wifi technologies).

In 2006 I joined Google to launch, with Dr. Larry Brilliant and a small group of Googlers, its philanthropic arm Google.org. There until late 2009, I built & ran the grants, investments & legal teams, and helped launch and fund several bold initiatives.

When not sitting behind a laptop, I help start-up entrepreneurs, practice music (mandolin), climb alpine-style (peaks all over, including Everest North Face, Alaska, South America and Mexico), work with large cat conservation (cheetahs & snow leopards), and assist a few non-profits be more impacting (American Himalayan Foundation & Furthur Foundation). Lately, I’ve been fairly active at the TED conferences in Long Beach and Edinburgh and am curator of TEDxAlcatraz. I also count mathematics and economics as among hobbies.
