Have you ever read the profile of a great candidate and just knew that this person is amazing. I am a talented, outgoing person interested in expanding my skill set and seeing the world. If there is one thing that I have learned working in the technology field, it's that skill is common. But, people with an energetic outlook on life and great communication skills are rare - those people are worth getting to know better. And I am sure that is an understanding that goes both ways. I have extensive experience in Networking and Systems Administration, including full stack engineering. In addition, I have a Master's Degree, an MBA, a CISM, a CISA, a CISSP, and a SANS certification. I am open to meeting all people in the Silicon Beach startup scene.
As an angel investor, I have helped to fund numerous startup companies. I am looking for investment opportunities where I not only give money, but also my experience, knowledge and network. I am interested in any innovative business local to Los Angeles, or in any startup in the advertising, compliance, finance, education, media, or security industries. Current and Previous Investments include: AirBnB Box Bitpay Dealflicks Meetup.com Palantir Technologies Pinterest Social Rewards Spotify Square Uber
I have been a Real Estate Investor since 1989 when I assumed the management of several residential properties. I parleyed those rentals into commercial real estate, including retail, triple net leases, and apartment complexes. Today, I invest in development opportunities, value-add acquisitions, and other residential and commercial income producing property, such as SFHs, multifamily apartment complexes, mini-storage, and commercial. My current portfolio is valued at over $15 million.
