Fellow FENG members --

I am interested in connecting with any members who are either participating or seeking to participate in the insurtech or fintech spaces as entrepreneurs / startups or as sources of capital, incubators, or accelerators for such ventures.

I am a University of Chicago trained economist with deep expertise in the property/casualty insurance space and a passion for the application of advanced analytics and data to all manner of problems in finance, risk assessment, risk transfer, and risk management more generally, as well as expertise in economic and financial analysis, modeling, and insurance data, accounting, and regulation. 

My goal is put to my energy, skills, knowldge, and network to good use connecting entrepreneurs and startups with the captial and other resources necessary to foster their success. My hope is that doing so will enable all to profit by bolstering society's ability to finance and otherwise cope with current and emerging risks in an  increasingly complex and dangerous world.
