About Me

Sarah A. Downey headshotHey guys. Big Gulps, eh? All right! (Pause) Welp, seeya later!

That was a Dumb and Dumber reference. If you got it, we have a 73% higher chance of being friends.

Me, the work edition: I’m currently a Principal and Director of Community at Accomplice, (which used to go by both Atlas Venture and FKA); formerly of OvulineStartup Institute, and Abine. I’m a writer, marketer, and lawyer and spend my days working with our portfolio companies, learning the business of VC, and thinking about brand and marketing for the firm.

Me, the personal edition: I buy more books than I can read. If I could make just one food calorie-free for life, it’d be brownie sundaes. Cosplay, Halloween, and theme parties are my favorite things. I have a tattoo of the Triforce from the Legend of Zelda. I do Tough Mudders. I crush sci-fi books, shows, and movies. Poor grammar makes me unhappy. I wish I could take a nap every day. I like electronic music, the First Amendment, and anti-humor. I have a pet bunny named Rorschach.
