“I was raised by a single mother and am 1 of 6 children in a blended family. I come from a unique background in the sense that I have a very wealthy side of...more my family and a very poor side of my family. This has given me access to do impactful work, as well as given me insight into problems that do not affect many of my peers including drug addiction, unemployment, and the criminal justice system.
How can I help?
Fundraising: I have personally raised $100M+ for deals that I am an investor in. I am a member of FOX (Family Office Exchange) and IPI (Institue for Private Investors) as well as a number of other exclusive clubs in which I have developed strong personal connections with over 15+ yrs. If there is ever a need for additional capital, I can likely help.
International Connections: I have traveled to 30+ countries and have lived extensively in Latin America. In addition, I run a millennial-focused hotel company in South America, giving me the opportunity to meet travelers from around the world. I also personally know many of the most influential and well-connected families in Latin America, Asia, and Europe, and could provide access to connections necessary for facilitating global expansion.
Recruiting talent: I have worked in technology private equity and have developed personal relationships with hundreds of highly skilled individuals across engineering, design, sales & C suite execs.
Creative: I am a ceramicist, big fan of all types of creative work and have relationships with boutique creative agencies across the world who do incredible work. I am also a long time supporter of Burning Man and member of the Soho House. I have strong ties to the music world, Hollywood, and artists of all types, that I would be happy to make introductions to
Philanthropy: I have started a non-profit in association with my hospitality brand that focuses on providing youth empowerment through education & sports across South America. I am also a member of NEXUS- a global community founded to bridge communities of wealth and social entrepreneurship with access to delegations at the UN and Davos. Lastly, I have strong relationships with a number of Non-Profit founders, including FK Day and his wife Leah- founders of World Bicycle Relief-which has donated 500,000+ bicycles to the developing world. I am always happy to make an intro and help start-ups with creating a social/charitable part of their business.”
