Who I am?

Creative - Driven - Open Mindened

I am a quite hardworking, determined and attentive person who is always ready to go further in order to help out. I have dreams I want to pursue, and I won't be satisfied until I find out whether or not I can achieve them.

If I'm told something is impossible to do, I often can't resist seeing if it's true. I don't mind failing if I learn something in the process.


Someone calls me an outgoing and effective communicator, because I have strong interpersonal skills and I am capable to work with different people, whether they are young or old, foreigners or natives, etc.. Over the years, I really enjoyed the opportunity to meet the interesting people from many different places and learn interesting facts about them.

I am responsible and resilience, because others appreciate my personal ability to challenge various aspects of work. Moreover I enjoy creating teams of people to tackle a challenging tasks.

What I do?

Investing - Problem Solving - Entrepreneurship

Before pursuing my MBA at Georgetown, I have worked for Legodo AG, a rapidly growing startup company that develops enterprise software to help companies communicate more personally with customers.

With Legodo, I have successfully managed client engagements averaging $2 million in licensing fees, built relationships with clients whose revenues average $450 million, led teams of up to 10 people and initiated and managed projects in seven countries.

I bring a wealth of experience in enterprise technology solutions, in roles ranging from consulting to business development and sales, my own entrepreneurial endeavors as well as from my work last summer and now in Venture Capital.

During my time in Business School, I worked for SineWave Ventures and Route66 Ventures, focusing on financial services technologies, Cyber Security and Big Data. Besides my studies, I was also part of the InSITE Fellowship program, a highly competitive leadership development program comprised of exceptional graduate students at top universities, including Columbia, NYU, Harvard, MIT, Stanford, Georgetown, and several medical research institutions. InSites major task is to provide early stage companies with consulting services to help them raise Seed or Series A financing. Moreover I was involved with MBA Admissions Office at Georgetown and managed the implementation of Salesforce over the a period of nine month. I managed the transfer and segmentation of data, proposed solutions, and worked entirely with the Information Technology team to make it happen.

I am currently working for Presidio Partners, a San Francisco-based venture capital firm with a focus on technology, energy and life science investments.

I'm never satisfied with the current trends and am always looing for new opportunities. Creativity, I believe will never progress unless we climb outside the confining box of simplemindedness.
