"Who is this guy?"
I would describe myself as a 23-year-old highly curious and focused on learning in all parts of life, professional and personal. I moved to the U.S. to study, but fell in love with the culture and ended up staying!
In my professional life, I look for opportunities to learn and develop. I have not been fixed on one industry, but have instead taken on many different types of roles in insurance, compliance, and education/entertainment including student assistant, sales representative, team leader, business developer as well as co-founder of a start-up I exited in summer 2021 - all concurrently while being a full-time student. No matter what I am working on, I am very invested. I seek out people I can learn from, as well as problems that I care about, and try to optimize every step of the journey.
- I tried entrepreneurship while in college and co-founded an EdTech company where we built an app that quickly attained several thousand active users and secured $100,000 in investment. I got priceless lessons in pitch decks, business planning, market research, A/B testing, recruiting, digital marketing, and product development.
- I have 1.5 years of experience using the Customer Relationship Management (CRM) system Salesforce as a sales representative in the insurance industry which included assisting with the integration of Salesforce at the company, lead generation, as well as managing a team of seven young adults aged 18-26. I learned sales management and processes while also getting valuable learnings in leadership at a young age.
- I was recognized as a "Young Talent" by EY in 2017 and worked in Assurance at the company.
- I worked as a business developer with a legal tech start-up. I independently set up business intelligence for the company, used my knowledge with SQL databases, analyzed new business development opportunities, and pioneered a digital system for quality assuring lawsuits before they were filed, resulting in sizeable savings for the company.
In my personal life, I like to travel, spend time in good company, and stay in shape. I also play tennis and read books, although not at the same time!
