What aspects of your work are you most passionate about?
I love to think & plan winning the future with my friends. Strategy, evaluating opportunities, business development, financial modeling, and long, dynamic conversations with like-minded people are my favorite things in business.
What's something you wish you had done years earlier?
I wish I had started living more vulnerably and more "fully" years earlier. Now my mission is to live fully known, fully present and bringing the fullness of who I am to those around me.
