Head of JLABS Bay Area


Why I'm a JPAL

I'm passionate about helping young companies make the connections that they need to help their businesses as quickly as possible so their solutions can make progress toward patients.


I have a PhD in Chemistry and experience in the lab with biochemistry but ended up with 20 years of business and corporate development and operations with small companies. I've been with J&J Innovation for 4 years in both deal making and JLABS roles.


Optimism is the faith that leads to achievement. Nothing can be done without hope and confidence.
