I'M WORKING ON

Career trajectory

I moved to San Francisco to work in tech in 2013, after a 5+ year stint in the investment banking industry. This move actually meant getting back to my original passion. Inspired by the movie Pirates of Silicon Valley, I have lived on the internet since age 11 (when I also learned to code HTML.

Investment Banking

My investment banking background begins in 2007 and includes time spent at large bulge bracket banks (UBS) to boutique shops. I've worked across various industry and product groups while gaining valuable skills in financial modeling, corporate strategy and analysis, dealmaking, and a comprehensive understanding of both the debt and equity markets.

Tech Startups

My career in tech began with a job in ad-tech where I worked as interim chief of staff to CEO and mostly worked with the marketing, sales/business development, and business operations teams.

Shortly thereafter, I became a founding team-member at an early-stage, YC company that I helped grow from sub 10 to ~30 employees. I supported the data science team in sourcing, organizing, and scrubbing huge amounts of data using MySQL, and web scraping.

Entrepreneurship & The Next Chapter

During college, I started a cheerleading camp and a loan origination company.

Post college, I served as co-founder of a film marketplace startup, and I founded a luxury hair products company that grossed over $10K in revenue per month at its peak.

Currently, I own a strategic advisory firm where I consult with startups and advise key stakeholders looking for liquidity in the private markets. I also founded a digital products company called Ambitious Grads.
