I'm John Beil, an investor, surfer, and amateur photographer living in San Francisco with my wife and daughter. I'm currently the Managing Director of Private Equity and Real Estate for Partners Capital. I previously ran venture capital and private equity investing for the University of California Investment Office for eight years. I previously worked in development finance at the World Bank's International Finance Corporation, including living in Mexico City for three years.
I'm an avid surfer and paddle out at Ocean Beach here in San Francisco as much as possible. Over the years I've traveled the world for surf, including trips to the Caribbean, Central America, Hawaii, Indonesia, the Maldives, Mexico, and Puerto Rico.
Our family loves hiking and we frequently explore the trails in Marin County and the northern California coast. I enjoy photography and occasionally share landscape and travel photos on this website.
