Seasoned early stage investor and entrepreneur. Principal at Blu Venture Investors. Married for 30 years and father of four sons.

PAX Momentum combines my three professional passions: Technology, Startups, and Finance. Nothing compares to the energy and creativity of early stage companies, which is why I decided to found PAX Momentum with my son, Jack Hanson.
