Adaptation has been central to my life. I grew up living in cultures around the world—from my hometown of Houston and Stavanger, Norway, to Alaska, Louisiana and California. That exposure helped me develop an open mind as well as the ability to relate to others, a trait that served me as a professional soccer player and that continues to serve me as an investor today.
By leveraging my passion for technology nurtured at Stanford, I’m able to support mission-driven companies in their quest to change the world. I’m constantly chasing the palpable energy that’s generated in environments where pioneers come together to collaborate. It’s been a privilege to pursue that as part of an intimate, dedicated team at IVP.
