I grew up just outside of New York City, and haven’t been able to stay away. After a few years in the wilderness of New Hampshire studying History and Economics at Dartmouth College, NYC pulled me back in and I started my career as an investment banker at Centerview Partners.
While at Centerview I found myself increasingly drawn to the rise of small brands that challenged the status quo by creating better products, reaching consumers through new channels, and committing to impactful causes. In other words, brands that understand what people actually want.
I realized that I wanted to build a career helping to shape and grow these brands – which is how I found my way to Harry’s. At Harry’s, I was one of the first members of the Labs team, tasked with incubating and investing in innovative brands across other verticals in personal care and the broader CPG space.
Following my time at Harry’s, I joined Verlinvest in June of 2020. At Verlinvest, I spend my time hunting for challenger brands in the digital and consumer space and providing ongoing support to and learning from the Verlinvest family of brands; primarily Hint, Oatly and CollegeWise.
In my free time, you can find me searching for new restaurants or recipes to try in NYC and beyond, doing crossword puzzles, or wandering the aisles of grocery stores, farmer’s markets, pharmacies, and boutiques looking for a good snack and / or the next big thing.
