As an associate on the investment team at Castanea, I spend my time evaluating new investment opportunities and working directly with our portfolio companies: The Bruery, Drybar, and CURiO.

Prior to joining Castanea, I worked at Credit Suisse in Investment Banking, covering industrial and business services clients. I graduated from the University of Wisconsin-Madison in 2015 with a degree in Finance. In my free time, you’ll find me playing trivia, searching for Boston’s best Bloody Mary, or re-watching episodes of Veep.


The Bruery is a producer of premium specialty craft beers. The company specializes in barrel-aged and sour beers, and creates complex flavors from simple ingredients.
