Born and raised in Colorado, I've always been drawn to adventure. As an athlete I led Harvard's basketball team to two ivy-league championships and played across Asia with Thailand's national basketball team. Today, I'm tackling my next big adventure as an investor and supporting founders scale their businesses alongside building Activant into a world-class organization.
