What I Do

At 25madison, I work with our team and our portfolio companies to build great businesses. As a lifelong entrepreneur, I've seen what works and what doesn’t work, over and over again. Now, I help entrepreneurs and our team avoid many of the pitfalls I’ve seen and experienced. I also work with our Board and Founders to set our overall strategy and make sure that the areas where we focus have positive impact and can generate great returns.

About Me

I’m a lifelong learner and entrepreneur. I've built businesses that have become public companies (twice), have been sold to large corporations and some that have been less successful. I've founded companies in media, telecommunications and business services, but now, I'm thinking most about business opportunities that tackle loneliness, aging, the future of work, preparedness and healthy living.

  • Product and Strategy, Healthcare Startups  
  • Omnichannel Communication Solutions, Change Healthcare
  • Behavioral Health Clinical Research, Vanderbilt University Medical Center
  • Vanderbilt University (BA, Dual Major in Neuroscience and Medicine Health & Society)

What I Do

I am passionate about building products which help bridge the gaps in today’s healthcare system. I started my professional career in behavioral health clinical research where I learned valuable skills necessary for conducting clinical research studies and interacting with patients. Since then, I have been leading product teams in strategy, design, and launches for early-stage healthcare startups.  I have launched various solutions for health plans, providers, and patients in markets such as patient diagnostics, healthcare communications, telehealth, and digital therapeutics. I am driven everyday by building solutions that improve the lives of patients, clinicians, and our healthcare workers.  

About Me

When I am not researching startups, emerging technology, and neuroscience, I enjoy spending time with friends and family, and participating in outdoor activities such as riding my horse, fly fishing, hiking, and photography. I’ve lived in Nashville, TN the last decade of my life and love live music and sports of all kind.

  • General Partner @ A-Level Capital, Fund 2
  • Johns Hopkins University (BS, Biomedical Engineering + Applied Mathematics & Statistics)

What I do

At 25madison, I work across the early-stage incubation and investment of healthcare technology opportunities. On the side I lead A-Level Capital, a student-run $2M fund, supporting and investing in Johns Hopkins affiliated entrepreneurs. What excites me most is working with passionate entrepreneurs and disruptive technology/business models that seek to make the world a more sustainable and healthy place to live.

 

About me

I was born in Toronto, Canada as the oldest of three siblings to Korean immigrant parents. I then moved to Bethlehem, Pennsylvania when I was 6 years old. I volunteer with West Side United, a non-profit in Chicago tackling the social determinants of health, and at Family Pillars Hospice, providing end-of-life care to the elderly. These collective experiences seeing healthcare from different lenses have inspired my long-term career aspirations to support patients' holistic needs as a physician-entrepreneur. In my free time I enjoy playing soccer, attempting to do ballet, and giving haircuts.

What I do

My role in 25m Health is to help our incubations and investments flourish in their technology journey. I partner up with founders to bring Talent, Technology, and Strategy to an apex. I particularly enjoy rolling up my sleeves and helping our founders deliver software, bricklaying architecture, and framing abstractions. My superpower is recruiting engineering talent and building engaging developer cultures (DX).

About Me

At my heart, I'm an innovator and complex problem solver. I write code every day and have enjoyed the recent renaissance in front-end tech. The big picture is my favorite place to explore, and I like leveraging my long tenure in health tech, building engineering teams, and launching new products to create wins. When I'm not working on startups, you can catch me on the ice playing hockey or building furniture using my welding or woodworking equipment.
