I truly believe a well-written letter, essay or report can open doors and create opportunity for people, and I have ample examples of situations where individuals used their words wisely and distinguished themselves and their ideas from exceptionally crowded competitions.

I earned my MBA at The Wharton School and currently pursuing my Masters in Journalism at Harvard University. I am an investment banker by training, having worked at Goldman Sachs and other major investment banks on M&A, private equity, venture capital and other alternative investments. I have extensive experience in business writing (business plans, reports, analysis), journalism and essays. I am also an Advisor to Princeton University's Keller Center for Innovation mentoring students running startup businesses.

My professional training was as an investment banking analyst and associate, where I was responsible for writing business plans, proposals and formal documents for institutional investors. I have been hired to write screenplays and was formerly represented by International Creative Management for a nonfiction book project. I am a contributing author to The Handbook of Infrastructure Investing (Wiley + Sons), and Co-Editor of Tanna Island Custom Laws (3rd Edition). My current documentary work has been profiled in Vanity Fair Magazine and other media outlets and I am an active public speaker, having recently given two TEDx Talks.
