*I love seed start-ups and living in Silicon Valley.
* I am an investor in ConXTech, a robotics company ( www.ConXTech.com), and RenovoRx (www.renovorx), a San Jose medical device company with a specialized catheter that can be inserted into the pancreas via the femoral artery. The purpose of the specialized catheter is to treat pancreatic cancer and a future use would be to deliver islet cells to the pancreas to treat diabetes.
* I am a member of Silicon ValleyGolden Seeds (www.goldenseeds.com), the third most active angel network in the country and the fourth largest angel investor network in size.
* I am an attorney and real estate broker licensed in the State of California.
*I have personally attended approximately 400 startup pitches this year.
*My main areas of interest are: robotics, AR, AI, gaming (mobile and MMOG) and big data management solutions, although I am open to other spaces.
