How did you hear about Venture Cafe Phoenix? 

My friend, Karen Bottesch, Commercial Banker for Bank of America introduced me to Venture Cafe.

Have you had any memorable connections at Venture Café Phoenix? If so, please tell us how you met them, who they are and how they have impacted you and your organization?

Too many to count, but to name a few; Azin Radsan van Alebeek, Tom Kelly, Kyle Jardine, and my mentor Karyn MacVean. Each of these amazing individuals have been invaluable to my professional growth.

What inspires you?

Being around individuals who are passionate and truly fulfilled in their work, regardless of job title. For example, the esteemed Baristas at Press Coffee Biltmore, are by far one of the most enthused, engaging, and energetic teams I’ve ever met. I’m inspired by Jimmy, Tom, and Liz’s love to selflessly go above & beyond the call of duty for their customers.

Tell us a little more about your current role with your organization and how it has impacted the start-up ecosystem here in the greater Phoenix region.
