Career History
Senior Advisor
2017 - Current

Founded in 1992, TPG specializes in recognizing value – or the potential for value – where others do not. Our contrarian philosophy, global reach, and deep investment and operational expertise set TPG apart from other firms. Our complementary asset classes offer a unique investment platform. TPG has an extensive global network and long-standing, on-the-ground presence in critical markets. TPG has built a strong international presence with 17 offices in 10 countries. We were one of the first U.S.-based private investment firms to establish significant operations in Asia and Europe, in 1994 and 1995 respectively.


At PlacePass, we believe that great trips are built on great experiences. You know the kind – the moment when you have the museum all to yourself. When you meet the best local cheese maker. When you finally get tickets to that bucket-list monument. When you bungee-jump off the bridge (don’t tell Mom). When you have that great guide who knows everything. Though technology has made travel better, it’s still surprisingly hard to find great experiences. PlacePass is here to change that. We’re using technology to make experiential travel more intuitive, fun, and accessible – so you can get back to focusing on, well, travel. With PlacePass, we’re making it easy for you to search, compare, and book great things to do worldwide. We’re making sure you have all the information you need to make great travel decisions. Our mission is to enrich lives through great experiences. That means we’re focused on ensuring our travelers make the most of their trip, and it also means we’re committed to supporting the livelihoods of amazing guides and tour operators worldwide. Our vision is to make planning and booking travel as much fun as the trip itself. Sound like something you could get behind Let’s talk.
