Story
Introduction

I'm currently a partner at Google Ventures, Google's private market investment arm. My primary focus areas are: mobile internet, payment and financing services, gaming and local services.

Before Google, I started Excite, JotSpot, and DigitalConsumer.org, along with my long-time business partner Graham Spencer. I currently serve on the board of the Electronic Frontier Foundation.

In my free time, I play way too much poker, obsess over formula 1 and read too many automotive blogs.
