I am a pragmatic corporate attorney based in Silicon Valley with a wide range of global clients. The pillars of my practice are entrepreneurs, emerging growth companies and venture capital investors. My day-to-day consists of negotiating and drafting venture financing deals as well as mergers and acquisitions. I also help companies on general corporate governance matters.

On a personal note, I grew up in Silicon Valley, and I went to undergrad and law school in San Diego. I've played lacrosse since I was in fourth grade, and I try to get out to the field regularly to help coach the next generation. One of the greatest rewards of my job is closing deals for my clients, because they worked years to reach that point, whether it be a financing or an acquisition.
