Hi, my name is Michael. I'm a technology investor and an undying supporter of entrepreneurship. I believe that startups can make the world a better place, so I try to help build them.

I sit or have sat on the Boards of Liveoak Technologies, Nowports, Starship HSA, Super Seguros, Harvest, and Credijusto.
I am also a Venture Partner at Goodwater Capital, a leading consumer tech VC that has invested in Toss, Monzo, Stash, Tide, Kyash, ZeroDown, Xendit, Dosh, EverlyWell, and others.
I have spent my career in financial technology as an investor and operator. I was employee #8 and a pre-product employee / SVP at iCapital Network, which has transformed the way alternative investments are bought and sold. I helped build the family office and wealth management networks at iCapital, which now has over $60 billion in assets and has received over $200 million in funding from investors including Goldman Sachs, BlackRock, Blackstone, Carlyle, and WestCap. I was also the first sales hire and Director of Institutional Investments at Mosaic, a financing platform for solar loans that has originated over $1 billion in loans and has received $300 million in funding from Warburg Pincus. I started my career as an investment professional with Goldman Sachs' Principal Strategic Investments Group, a FinTech investing team in London.
I am the founder of two podcasting and content platforms. Alt Goes Mainstream is a content platform that delivers the latest developments in the alternative investments space. There is everything from blog posts to podcasts with industry leaders to keep everyone up to speed with the latest trends in alternative investments. I am also the co-founder of a content platform, Community x Capital where Alexis Ohanian and I share our conversations about the collision of Community x Capital.
I am also the Founder and Managing Member of M4Fund and Sixth Man Capital, investment vehicles dedicated to partnering with and investing in innovative financial technology companies that are reimagining the future of finance and technology.
