My deepest desire is community and connection. I started a forum for constructive dialogue at my university which continues to serve the community to this day, founded a social good company which produced a revolutionary web application, and now bring together entrepreneurs from every corner of Chicago as the current Director of Coffee & Conversation.
My motivation comes from helping others, whether it’s by providing people with exceptional products and services or creating innovations which improve the lives of those around me. I know what it takes to make waves from firsthand experience, and after having a taste of the rocky waters that comes with changing the status quo, I've developed a thirst for even greater challenges. I see a world full of possibilities yet am grounded enough to know that everything sounds pretty on paper until it’s time to take action.
If you share my enthusiasm for finding ever more inventive ways to do good, then please connect with me! I'm always looking to forge new relationships with people who share my vision of a better world.
