    genius with repeat success

    Does the following in red just mean "he is a genius who has succeeded repeatedly"?

    Venter is to biology what Steve Jobs was to computers. Genius with repeat success.

    Thank you.

    Re: genius with repeat success

    That is my understanding. I'm not very comfortable with the way that passage is written, though with more of the text it may feel natural in context.
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.

    I would not punctuate it as two sentences.
