Jeff provides intellectual property and venture development support via Schell IP. A multi-exit founder himself and originally the founder of Rocky Mountain Patent and the Quandary Group with a talented team of scientists, engineers and attorneys, Jeff remains on a mission to transform innovative concepts into companies.

He then leveraged the valuable IP the group developed to raise several million dollars to acquire TranS1, an innovative medical device company, and relocated the company to Colorado. Soon thereafter, ColoradoBiz Magazine named TranS1 one of the top 250 companies in Colorado by revenue. The Denver Post also named TranS1 Denver's "Most Innovative Workplace" in 2016. Further, the Colorado Technology Association named TranS1 a nominee for "Company of the Year." Under Jeff's leadership, Orthopedics This Week awarded TranS1 with the 2017 Spine Technology Award. He later invested in leading Colorado startup Proov, leading the company through a $40MM Series A.

Jeff attended Northwestern University, graduating with degrees in Industrial Engineering & Management Sciences and Economics in 2004. He subsequently earned his JD and masters degrees in International Studies and Medical Informatics. Jeff separately studied economics at Harvard University, and in 2007, was a delegate at the Harvard China-India Development & Relations Symposium. ColoradoBiz Magazine named Jeff one of the 25 "Most Influential Young Professionals in Colorado." He was also a finalist for the Denver Post's "Colorado Innovator of the Year" and "Denver Trailblazer" awards. In 2017, Denver Mayor Michael Hancock invited Jeff to participate in Denver's official trade delegation to South Africa and Kenya.
