“The businesses that I find most interesting are the ones that are unconcerned with the spotlight or accolades and are just singularly focused on dominating their respective categories.

My favorite part about this job is having the opportunity to be in the trenches alongside entrepreneurs and play a small part in helping them realize their aspirations.”
