  • Living in Pennsylvania and riding out the virus with my wife and 2 daughters – and taking advantage of this opportunity to spend this precious time together as a family

  • Focusing on supporting my portfolio companies and helping them in this difficult economic time

  • Along with the blue 9 capital team, sourcing, evaluating and investing in new early stage companies with great management teams and strong business plans

  • Spending a lot of time following and studying the election, the economic situation, and the Covid virus

  • Watching movies and TV shows most nights. Most recently I have enjoyed the new Steve McQueen movie “Lovers Rock” and the new HBO Max series “Running with Wolves”

  • Biking for fitness, and to keep my head straight.

  • Zooming and texting with good friends.
