Hi! I'm an early-stage investor at Greylock Partners, focused on technologies that improve how we work, connect and communicate. 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, particularly those that use computer vision, NLP, relevance, deep learning and other modern machine learning approaches to do more work for us

2. messaging, audio and the conversational economy

3. cyber security; keeping safe as more and more of our lives and companies become internet-connected and digital

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

5. new forms of media

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 over the next hundred years will be the uneven distribution of the benefits of technological advancement/AI. I'm INTJ. I ignore the cynics, and I speak my mind more than is wise.
