About speakers

At my core, I am an ultra-curious, hyper-competitive individual with a love for the big challenges and bigger adventures.

At Upfront Ventures, I am blessed to work alongside a team of brilliant, competitive, and high-integrity investors in the greatest city in America – Los Angeles (#LongLA). Together, we work to identify and support the world’s best entrepreneurs in building lasting, industry-transforming businesses.

Prior to Upfront, I spent three years launching and building PandoDaily, a next generation media company seeking to document and make sense of the massive power shift currently underway from the corridors of Wall Street and DC to Silicon Valley and the broader global technology industry. Before this, I co-founded a merchant bank making opportunistic early-stage global investments across technology, natural resources, real estate, and a variety of other industries and assets. What ties together these seemingly disparate roles is the challenge of evaluating people and dissecting markets and business opportunities.

In classic LA fashion, I’m a transplant. I grew up in the suburbs of Philadelphia and still miss the direct, authentic, and unapologetic style of people across the Northeast (but not the weather). That said, one of the best decisions of my life was cross-country to Santa Barbara to study Chemical Engineering at UCSB, while competing as a Division I golfer.
Garry is a designer/engineer turned early stage investor. He was a partner at Y Combinator for nearly five years where he advised and funded over 600 companies and more than a thousand founders. He was cofounder of YC-backed blog platform Posterous (Top 200 Quantcast site, acquired by Twitter in 2012). Before that he was employee #10 at Palantir, where he was a founding member of the engineering team for Palantir's financial analysis product, and also designed Palantir's logo. He has a BS in Computer Systems Engineering from Stanford.
