He made the transition to entrepreneurship working at the Partners Healthcare Research Ventures and Licensing practice and Mass Medical Angels. He decided to pursue healthcare IT as the best means to enact change after a consulting project showed him the potential that the HITECH Act and PPACA had to truly enact change. He recently completed the Rock Health accelerator and is currently working with a team of health innovators to launch HealthSpark, a new community focused on enabling innovators in this very difficult space.
