He has been a successful angel investor since 2005 with both Robin Hood Ventures, where he is a managing partner, and with Social Venture Circle Philadelphia. He has served on the Board of Directors for Social Venture Circle , Good Company Ventures, an accelerator for social impact companies, and several startup companies including Wash Cycle Laundry and Milkcrate.
