Tell us about yourself.

After attending undergrad at Pepperdine, I caught the startup sales bug and was lucky to be part of a company that was acquired by Zillow. After working in Zillow’s Seattle headquarters for several years, I made the journey back to the Bay Area in search for my next early stage company destination.

Why Ironclad?

I got my first exposure of Ironclad while at my most previous company, Snapdocs, which implemented several Ironclad workflows. I was impressed with the product, met the team, and quickly decided to make the jump.

What’s your favorite win so far?

Our NYC Community Event was a lot of fun, and great execution across the team. It was our first attempt at building a community in NYC, and it was very well received.

Who inspires you?

People who take the risk and bet on themselves, especially startup founders. I’ve been lucky to work with founders/CEOs with incredible grit, persistence and execution.

What career advice do you have for your younger self?

Be patient.

What’s the last book you’ve read?

“Season of the Witch” — a great recommendation by one of our sales engineers, James. It’s a must-read for anyone who wants to know more about the raw history of San Francisco.

What’s something that most people would be surprised to know about you?

My dream is to compete on the Food Network show, “Chopped.”

When you’re not at work, you’re where?

In the Presidio with our dog, Cali.
