Full bio

I currently work in Business Development and Partnerships at Sailo.  Prior to this role, I spent seven years in investment banking, working at Goto Capital, Macquarie Capital, and Bank of America.  In those positions, I focused on debt issuances, leveraged finance, high yield and syndicated loan capital markets, and structured finance transactions.  My experience includes financings for many large issuers throughout the country in sectors including Industrials, Financial Institutions, Energy, Consumer & Retail, Technology & Media, and Business Services.

I earned a Bachelor of Science in Economics from The Wharton School, University of Pennsylvania with concentrations in both finance and real estate.  I have the following securities licenses: Series 7, 63 and 79. 

Outside of the office, I am a passionate sailor.  I own Persistence, a Sparkman & Stephens designed Tartan 27-2, and spend nearly every weekend during the spring, summer, and fall out on the water.  I compete annually in the Around Long Islands Regatta (2012 - 2015), and have achieved a second place finish in our division each year.  In addition, I hold the Basic Keelboat, Basic Cruising, and Bareboat Chartering certifications.
