What I read

Always keeping up with business/entrepreneurship related news, the latest in scientific discoveries and social media and marketing, and fashion. I read lots of books and even more poetry. I'm a writer, so I love to read others' writing.

Side projects

I'm really into science, especially Astrobiology. On clear nights, you can find me outside identifying constellations. I also love to make music. I sing, play guitar, a little piano, and (badly) play the drums. I created a newspaper column in 2012.

Ideal team

I'm an ENTP, so I'm skilled at seeing the big picture and identifying patterns. This makes me good at planning change and coming up with strategies. I love to lead, but just as much, I love to learn from others.
