What do you do at Blackbird?

I work with unreasonably ambitious founders who are looking to solve the most complex and consequential problems. No idea is too early, no risk is too great and no plan is too improbable!

Investor at Playground Global in Palo Alto and Future Fund in Melbourne.

What do you believe that others do not?

The greatest risk that a venture investor can take, is to not take enough risk.

What companies have you invested in?

Carted and more to come...

What ideas are you excited by right now?

Synthetic biology. Embedded commerce. Compute. Healthcare. Robotics.
