Key Accomplishments

I am extremely comfortable in uncertain, vague and constantly changing circumstances (essentially what the first year of a start-up is). I am able to navigate the chaos and put it into order based on lessons learned from customers. I contribute to de-risking the startup and validate its business model. I'm passionate about solving problems and helping people. This broad passion has given me the opportunity to work in multiple industries - F&B, fragrance, social networking apps, b2b enterprise communications, financial technology, fashion, etc.
