Key Accomplishments

Over the past couple of years, I've worked on large M&A and cap markets transactions, totaling more than $35 billion. I regularly work directly with CEOs and CFOs of large and successful tech companies and love the insights my job affords me.

I've lived, worked or studied in USA, Argentina, Germany, Italy, India and the UK. I'd be very interested in taking a successful domestic company global.
