You Should Know About Me

Key Strengths

Innovation • Social Entrepreneurship • Human-Centered Design • Impact Investing • Social Impact • Systems Architecture • Systems Thinking

Key Accomplishments

I am empathetic.

You should probably be empathetic as well.

If you are not, I will understand your point of view ;)

I love to collaborate.

I love to work alone.

I live intentionally.

I make decisions to benefit our working and personal relationship together.

I value honesty, transparency, and deep motivation.

How I like to work with people As a Cofounder

Let's actively develop RELATIONSHIPS and see what type of CULTURE comes from our synergies.

If we haven't killed one another by this point, and assuming there is time, maybe we can throw something together for an exit.

Hit me up!


As an Advisor

More talking. Less wondering about what the right decision is and who the right person is.

Just connect.


Talk with you soon.
