Tell us about yourself:

I moved to San Francisco in 2008 and have been riding motorcycles ever since. I’ve always had a passion for technology and hardware and, over the years, I combined this passion with experience in managing sales teams for legal technology firms and auto dealer leaders, Dodge and Chevrolet. My experiences led me to strategically deploy teams to scale sales operations across major territories in the US. Since Co-Founding Bolt Motorbikes, my skill sets complete the foundation of our core team, bringing together business development, production, engineering and innovation.

What is your innovation/idea?

Bolt Motorbikes is an electric two wheeler that bridges the gap between motorcycle riders and bicycle riders in the most fun, thrilling and stylish way. It’s the ultimate urban transporter.

Why are you participating in this competition?

Cancer has affected all of us - Some more directly then other. Over the years, I found myself in a situation where my friend was diagnosed with brain cancer and it was then I realized there weren’t many options to fight it. Since then, I’ve been raising money for cancer research so that we can more effectively treat, and hopefully, cure cancer so no one has to deal with it again.
