After growing up in the Middle East and Switzerland, I went to the USA to complete my undergrad at the University of Pennsylvania, where I completed a dual-degree program in computer science and in finance from the Wharton school.

I started my career in banking – Paribas and Indosuez, to build on my fascination with capital markets mis-pricing and how to build intelligent systems to capture them. However, my experience with European banking was too slow so I decided to do an MBA at INSEAD to ‘get back on the fast track’. When I graduated at 25, I was quite young and unsure of the correct career path to follow, so I joined McKinsey as a strategy consultant, although I was tempted to join Eli Lilly where I had a great experience over the summer.

Consulting at McKinsey was a great fast pace learning experience. I really enjoyed it a lot and would highly recommend it anytime. However, after a couple of years, I was lured by the dynamism of startups. That startup is turning 20 this year and it has now a couple more siblings, with the main focus around technology and education.

My current passion is Montessori education (I now co-own a school!) and everything around the science and tools to enable in others their awareness of and leveraging of the powers they have within.
