I am excited by the opportunities created by the disruption of the media industry. I want to help reinvent the way we create high quality, niche-audience focused content and build brands.
Prior to pursuing an MBA, I worked at Big Society Capital, a $1 billion impact investing firm in London. As one of the company's first employees, I helped build BSC's investment strategy and team. I have also co-founded two ventures, and have a background in design thinking and immunology.
