We find the middle ground where efficiency equals value, and leverage people and capital to create successful outcomes.

Turn/River focuses on redefining the world of private equity. We aren’t legacy capital providers driven only by profitability. We find the middle ground where efficiency equals value, leveraging both people and capital to drive successful outcomes.

At New York University, I majored in economics with minors in computer science and business. I have always loved living at the intersection of technology and business. I started my career as a business analyst at Enact Systems, a renewable energy startup, where I learned the ins and outs of operating a bootstrapped software company. I then moved on to a venture-backed startup focused on combining fintech and real estate, and eventually supported a search fund on its first and only transaction—an experience which gave me many of the sourcing and financial analysis skills I use today. Prior to T/R, I was at a boutique investment bank as an analyst in New York where I worked with management teams for an eventual exit.  

At T/R, I work to find SaaS businesses that are in need of investment. My role requires sourcing new investments (typically serving as the first touchpoint for our future portfolio companies), performing due diligence on any prospective investments, and providing growth equity and operational expertise to help those businesses grow.  

A fun fact about me is that I captained my college Bollywood dance team to five nationally ranked competitions. In my free time, you’ll find me watching Manchester United, playing with my Cavapoo puppy, or taking a dance class somewhere in the city.
