Five startups, three of them hardly more than a construction site when I started. One was a swimming pool. Another was a car dealership in Milan, Italy.

From standing behind CAM 2 to live streaming from my phone, from following along to defining successful strategies, I learned to keep moving forward, learned from failure, embrace the change.


15+ years of management experience, building teams, culture and leading projects. 8 years of executive management experience, defining vision, strategy and business turnaround.
