"I was intrigued very early on and that doesn’t happen often, but this was something that I really wanted to be a part of."
How would you describe your areas of expertise based on industry, market, and/or function?
I focus on creating investor and company value. This stretches from helping companies create attractive strategies, hiring the right teams, and finding the right capital to grow. Today I focus on early stage investing and strategy but have spent my career in both growth stage and mature businesses across many sectors.
What is one book, blog, or podcast you recommend widely?
The Farnam Street Blog.
What is something that's not on your LinkedIn profile that you wish was?
That I care. It’s just not something you’d put on a resume, but I really care.
Finish the following sentence: "In my experience, ______________."
The facts and data always change, but the frameworks for making decisions don’t.
What is your strength when it comes to emotional intelligence?
My willingness to learn and listen. I’m still working on my own emotional intelligence as a whole, but I’m willing to learn and listen.
What is your superpower?
Helping people ask themselves the right questions to improve.
What have you learned about yourself mentoring with Junto?
That I can have more patience than I thought I could.
What is your most memorable Junto moment?
Meeting Raman. I was very intrigued very early on and that doesn’t happen often, but this was something that I really wanted to be a part of.
