I’m a technologist who has oscillated between trying to run towards and away from that identity since I first became enamored with a computer. I believe technology can change the world for the better and am passionate about applying that energy to improving healthcare. I love to laugh and learn, feel guilty for not doing enough, and believe if you are doing the right things with the right people it seldom feels like work.
After beginning my career at Accenture’s Center for Strategy Technology I led several R&D teams at webMethods, an integration startup that eventually went public. After a corporate strategy role in the Office of the CEO at SAP I co-founded Appirio which raised funds from Sequoia, GGV and General Atlantic, became the largest independent partner of salesforce, Workday and Google enterprise, and grew to over 1200 people before its acquisition.
From there I decided to work on something that could serve others. I went back to school to learn about medical devices and AI, yet it was later that healthcare became personal. My mom endured an unexpected twelve weeks in a hospital with multiple major surgeries – culminating in a successful bilateral lung transplant. I spent over a thousand hours in the hospital with her and the experience led me to write a guide for how families could navigate the crisis of critical care. Through that the eventual mission of LookDeep – to help hospitals ‘Be Present for Every Patient at Every Moment’ – became my obsession.
Applying emerging technology to help patients in the hospital and those that care for them is the most important professional experience I’ve ever had the fortune to work on.
