Favorite Book

David & Goliath by Malcolm Gladwell was life changing for me. Not only did it make me comfortable with my dyslexia, it helped me realize that neurodivergence can be a superpower.

"What lies behind us and what lies before us are tiny matters compared to what lies within us.”

Why Fintech?

Traditional financial institutions have moved away from offering services and products that allow consumers to achieve financial freedom. One of the biggest drivers of inequality is financial literacy and accessibility, and fintech is working toward closing that gap through re-democratizing financial tools. I'm excited to find, fund, and support the next generation of financial services companies that, combined with technology, can create a better future for us all


Prior to joining Better Tomorrow Ventures, I was a financial analyst at Wells Fargo and supported the commercial bank, investment bank, and real estate groups. Before that, I studied Economics and Finance at the University of Southern California.
