Accelerator is the early stage technology group for Silicon Valley Bank where we focus on banking, debt financing, and making impactful connections for both entrepreneurs and their startups. I lead our Accelerator team that manages the relationships with and provides debt financing to consumer Internet, consumer software, digital media, FinTech and payments startups throughout Silicon Valley. I also spend time advising on SVB's payments strategy and solutions.
Previously, I was a part of SVB's Private Equity Services group for over five years where I was the banker for a number of venture capital and private equity firms, including: a16z, Marlin Equity Partners, Redpoint Ventures, Shasta Ventures, Sequoia Capital and Vector Capital. In that role, I also led the group’s expansion into and efforts in Southern California. In 2003, I started at SVB in our asset-based lending group where I helped early and growth stage technology companies leverage A/R to improve cash flows.
I earned a B.Sc. in Finance and Economics from Santa Clara University in 2003. Go Broncos!
