Chief Technology Officer
Amplify makes early investments in LA's most promising startups, and is a leading institution and venture capital fund in the Los Angeles technology scene. The firm invests at the pre-seed stage, and follows portfolio companies through seed and Series A funding.
I find my inspiration as a mentor, a serial technology entrepreneur, and a founder of technology companies. Currently, I am creating the next-generation technology that -Aligns Web commerce with merchants who seek lifetime, valued customers, and that -Integrates the Web economics that treat people (like you and me) not as eyeballs or clicks or leads, but as respected individuals.Currently, I am the co-founder at TargetClose, a co-founder of the accelerator, Amplify.LA and Chairman for the CTO Forum/LA chapter. Previously, I have secured five patents (and one more is pending), have been awarded the winner of the 2006 InfoWorld Most Innovative IT Project Zag(TrueCar) SOA initiative, and have served as a fighter pilot in the Israeli air force.To be inspired, we have to show up and participate in something that is beyond ourselves. And since anything worthwhile does take a village, please start mentoring someone today and share your passions.
