Expert Bio

I help founders transform their vision to reality. Every founder sees a big vision no one else can see. At 1871, we provide workshops, mentorship, and resources to take that big vision and break it down into tactical steps.

Prior to 2019, I was the manager of the Techstars Chicago Accelerator Program.

Someday I will be founder myself, but in the meantime, I will continue to read and learn as much as I can in between my weekend cook-a-thons and world travels.
