About me

John and his daughter Jessica

I have been an Angel Investor for the past 15 years and have enjoyed the excitement and fast-paced work of the industry. Prior to investing I worked for over 25 years at AT&T, both doing engineering and international business. I made over 100 trips to the far east and was working on “bleeding edge” technology- something I found to be useful when I transitioned into Angel Investing. I grew up in Chicago and graduated from IIT with degrees in Mathematics and Anthropology. I have two children, Jessica (22) and Jordan (15). Jessica is a recent graduate from the University of Chicago, currently working as an IT Consultant. She serves as the Editor and Webmaster of this site.

I have currently made over 40 professional investments, in an eclectic range of industies. For many of these investments I have been the lead Angel.
