I was born and raised in NYC and recently returned after living away for several years, including some time in Buenos Aires and Bogotá. I'm very close to my family and I love to learn. I like reading about a big range of topics, going to museums, trying new kinds of food, traveling, and learning about different cultures. I studied philosophy as an undergrad at Yale and have an MBA from Harvard. For work, I invest in real assets in Latin America.
What I’m doing with my life
I work at a private equity fund where I try cooking up interesting new deals. I'm also very interested in social enterprises and work on a few on the side.

Learning languages, writing, and playing pool. I've also been told I'm a good listener and that I make people feel comfortable.
