I have a passion for change and progress. I love hearing new, transformative ideas and finding ways to implement those ideas to make the world a better place. In 2010, I was fortunate enough to be a co-founder of FilmBreak/ CrowdfundX and have been directly involved in the Los Angeles area tech community ever since. It’s my firm belief that our tech community is on the verge of becoming the next great tech hub for innovation and progress because, not only does our region have the talent to create amazing companies, we have the foresight to grow them the right way. In an effort to bring this vision to life, I founded ScaleLA in 2016 with the vision to be the engine of progress in Los Angeles by building collaboration and communication between startups, community leaders, and public/private partners.
ScaleLA’s “10th Floor” is a physical manifestation of our vision – a 15,000 square foot innovation space designed to support healthcare innovation and startups that share that vision.
