Hi! I'm an early-stage investor at Greylock Partners, focused on technologies that improve how we work, connect and communicate. I'm especially good at closing the gap between creative technologists and people with business problems. More here about what I look for in startups.

My mission is to partner with amazing founders to productize ideas, get advantaged distribution, and build dominant businesses. I'm honored to be part of Linkedin's Next Wave and Forbes' 30 Under 30.

I'm most interested in:

1. intelligent applications; those that use computer vision, NLP, deep learning and other modern machine learning approaches to do more work for us

2. messaging, audio and the conversational economy. beyond the hype, new ways to engage with customers on their own terms

3. cyber security and abuse of digital platforms; increasingly important as our lives and companies become ever more connected and digital

4. the intersection of software and healthcare; improving our current crushingly inefficient system and pursuing the data-driven future of medicine

5. new forms of media

6. our autonomous (and safer) future

On the side, I read, write, bike, box, and do what I can to be a diversity advocate and improve the female investor and entrepreneur ecosystem. I think our biggest societal challenge
