Inspiration. In all walks of life, I look for an equitable exchange of value and believe in doing everything in a socially responsible way. I love working with diverse teams as they best represent our amazing planet. Emerging markets have been my passion and my profession. Once described as an optimist and anarchist, I love doing things in an unconventional way. All of this and more has led me to Incubaid.
At Play. Outside of work, you can find me outside – skiing (when the weather allows), biking, hiking, and gardening. I have been to 147 countries on last count, so one might say I like to travel.
