New York City
My education comes from long train rides in India, from afternoons reading online articles, from trying and failing, from surrounding myself with smart people, from continually writing, from honest conversations with family, from spirited debates with friends, from institutes of knowledge The University of Kansas and The University of Chicago Booth School of Business.
I believe capital's ability to create incentives, change livelihoods, and allow well executed ideas to be successful. Entrepreneurship is the courage to chase ideas that impact people's lives. I've worked on launching startups of my own (in music, travel, and social impact) and have helped others accelerate theirs at Techstars NYC. In a previous life, I worked at UBS Global Asset Management and learned a lot about people, projects, and passion.
I'm from Chicago and every city I travel is inevitably measured against this high bar. My global adventures most recently brought me through Germany, Nepal, India, Myanmar, Sri Lanka, Thailand, Indonesia, Hong Kong, & Japan. If I could travel anywhere, it would be outer space.
