I am deeply passionate about generating revenues and profits, increasing shareholder value, connecting with clients, partners, investors, and employees and crafting an offer they find compelling.
I have been the founder and co-founder of start-ups, a senior leader in start-ups, and the CFO and COO of public and private companies.
I have done small deals and large – from a few million to a few billion and along the way built long lasting shareholder value by generating revenues and providing exceptional service and products to customers.
Whether doing business in the U.S. or internationally, I’m equally at ease in the board room as I am on the shop floor. I’ve done business in France, UK, Belgium, Chile, Slovenia, Italy, Kuwait, Saudi Arabia, Columbia, Brazil, Mexico, Japan and the US. And, I speak English and French with native fluency and speak fluent Spanish and Portuguese. I also have dual US and French nationality and am able to work throughout the EU.
I received my M.B.A. in Finance from the Stern School of Business at New York University and a double B.A. in Economics and Political Science from New York University.
Whether it’s a turnaround, start-up, kick-start or established business, I excel at increasing revenues, increasing profits, fund raising, making operations more efficient and building equity value and doing so with a special focus on customer care and employee morale.
In sum, I have spent my entire career building businesses – many of them start-ups – and consider myself fortunate to have been involved with world class, cutting edge leaders and some truly amazing technologies.
As a result of all these wonderful experiences, I regularly advise and work with technology companies on revenue generation, product market fit, fund raising and operations. I genuinely enjoy sharing my experiences with others— so don’t hesitate to contact me if you’d like my assistance.

A Favorite Piece of Music
This is from the folks at Playing For Change who bring together artists from around the US and the world to play together. It’s a great tribute to team work, execution, entrepreneurship and timeless music.
