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 for the University of California Investment Office. 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 regularly paddle out at Ocean Beach here in San Francisco. Over the years I've traveled extensively for surf, including the Caribbean, Central America, Hawaii, Indonesia, the Maldives, Mexico, and Puerto Rico.
Our family loves hiking and we regularly explore the trails in Marin County and the northern California coast. I enjoy photography and occasionally share landscape and travel photos on this website.
