I am excited by the intersection of business and creativity. Founders play exactly there; creatively changing the status quo with a business first mindset.
I have always straddled science and the arts, business and creative worlds. I studied mathematical economics and film production in college and worked at the intersection of media and technology throughout my career. My mission is to help entrepreneurs build their businesses and be a trusted advisor along the way.
I bring my global perspective to the table.
I have worked at, partnered with, and invested in companies across the U.S., Asia, and Europe. I believe that new consumer trends emerge globally, and in some cases from emerging markets where consumers’ pain points are unmet by existing infrastructure or solutions.
It is about the growth mindset.
My personal motto, courtesy of Benjamin Graham, is to do something foolish, something creative, and something generous, every day. I believe in the power of learning something new daily through reading and conversations.
