I am a General Partner at Canaan, a diversified venture capital firm investing in early-stage IT and healthcare companies. My personal focus is on biotechnology, healthcare IT and consumer medicine.

I'm lucky to partner with talented and committed entrepreneurs, executives and investors. Working together, we can improve lives and deliver big returns.

I love to travel, hike/bike/run/ski/paddle, cook, read and spend time with an amazing family and circle of friends.
