Greg has been an angel and venture investor for over 20 years. He began his career at Endotherapeutics, a medical device company that was acquired by U.S Surgical. He then founded Rembrandt Venture Partners. Greg co-founded two venture-backed companies. Alter Ego Networks, a cloud based web transcoding company acquired by Macromedia (MACR) and MetaLincs, an enterprise e-mail search company that was acquired by Seagate (STX).

He thrives on partnering and discovering expansion stage opportunities with visionary founders and aligned VC’s that seek an advantage with the Cheyenne structure.
When he’s not engaging with management, Greg spends time in the mountains, fly-fishing and skiing with his family. He enjoys music, architecture, and the relentless pursuit of fine art in many forms. He is an active member and advisor of the Idaho Youth Ranch which focuses on the rehabilitation of troubled teens through equine therapy.

Prior to joining Cheyenne Ventures, Jay was CEO at Zenefits where he orchestrated an impressive turnaround of one of the most disruptive HR companies in history.
