With over 17 years of experience spanning the realms of corporate finance, startup innovation, and venture capital, I've played a role in the success of more than 28 startups.

Whether it's advising on startup investments or navigating the intricate financial aspects of businesses, my diverse background equips me to provide invaluable support.

I believe in empowering the next generation with financial wisdom. My mission is to equip individuals with financial knowledge, whether they're entrepreneurs charting their course or young minds embarking on a journey of learning.
