Former Managing Director of Infinia Ventures (part of Infinia Group), where I did brand strategy & design work for startups in NYC. Formerly Havas Worldwide, Booz Allen Hamilton, and IBM. NYU Stern MBA, UNC Kenan-Flagler undergrad.

As someone who transitioned from management consulting into the more creative fields of advertising / brand strategy, I can help guide candidates with tools and tactics for making the move and getting a jump on the job search.
