Managing Partner @ Quest Venture Partners
I am responsible for finding new investment opportunities, closing investment rounds and working closely with the management teams of Quest Venture Partners portfolio companies. My investment expertise are in mobile, consumer internet and video. I was a Board Member working very closely with Qik, Inc for 1 year and 9 months until the company was sold to Skype.
Prior to joining Quest Venture Partners, I worked with a number of startups and established companies ranging from Internet, distributed computing, real estate, and news media. I am an active member of angel communities and the early stage ecosystem. I hold a BS in Computer Information Systems from Bentley University.
I was born and raised in Tokyo, Japan and am bilingual. I enjoy philosophizing, conceptualizing, theorizing and implementing technological ideas, traveling, strategy tabletop gaming, fishing, reading and spending time with my wife.
