Turn/River provides the human capital and financial capital needed to unlock untapped potential and foster lasting value. Our investment thesis and approach are similar to following a recipe, serving as a comprehensive, step-by-step plan for success. We not only give you detailed instructions, but also the best ingredients paired with the sous chefs that help you bring Michelin-star recipes to life. We ensure that even the smallest details in the recipes that make up our playbooks are powered by data-driven insights.
I studied business at UC Berkeley, where I learned how to thoughtfully challenge convention through collaborative teamwork. I apply this ethos to my work at T/R every day, sourcing and evaluating new investment opportunities and using our unique playbooks to facilitate growth for our portfolio companies. In my role, I build relationships with passionate CEOs and founders who champion bold ideas, take risks, and place innovation at the core of their operations. Every day is a new learning experience because I get to actively engage with a diverse set of hard-working, visionary founders and help provide value to their business journey from an operationally-focused perspective.
I believe trust is an essential and often overlooked component of a growth-focused partnership. That’s why I make relationship building a priority in all aspects of my work. Our priority is to ensure both current and future portfolio companies understand that strong relationships are needed to achieve effective goal-planning for each business. These efforts then translate into even greater results.
Outside of work, you can find me exploring new trails across the Bay Area or biking through San Francisco!
