I spend most of my time working on early-stage companies in the medical device and health technology arenas. I've had the pleasure of working at the intersection of these two worlds for most of my professional career.
I'm a Founding Partner and Managing Director of Big Sky Biomedical, a leading medtech accelerator. I serve as the President and CEO of FastWave Medical, a company founded by Big Sky Biomedical partners, which closed on a milestone-based investment plus acquisition within 6 months of formation. I'm also a Co-Founder and Advisor to Crossfire Medical, a Big Sky Biomedical portfolio company.
In 2010, I founded Medsider, a digitally native media company focused on disseminating key insights from medtech and healthtech thought leaders. And in 2015, I co-founded Joovv, and led the company from zero to $20M in topline revenue within 4 years of launching its first product.
Previously, I spent my entire professional career in various medtech and healthcare leadership positions at CR Bard, Boston Scientific, Covidien, Medtronic, and Touch Surgery.
