Joe has a passion for investing in people building at the inter­sec­tion of machine learning and industry. Specif­i­cally, he is excited by products and platforms that leverage advances in computer vision, natural language processing, and rein­force­ment learning to transform stagnant sectors and legacy business models. Working closely with DCVC’s general and operating partners, Joe identifies, pursues, and conducts due diligence on early- and growth-stage investment opportunities..

Joe started his profes­sional career at United Tech­nolo­gies, where he gained exposure to the aerospace and defense sector. Later, while working at global data center and inter­con­nec­tion provider Equinix, he witnessed firsthand the impact of the platform shift to cloud. Most recently, Joe worked at Union Square Advisors, a boutique investment bank in San Francisco, where he advised premier software companies on mergers and acquisitions.
