I am the Co-Founder and CEO of an early stage web start-up called dusoto, a youth travel site with a focus on international nightlife. I am also an MBA candidate at the Ross School of Business at the University of Michigan where I am focusing my studies in Entrepreneurship, Strategy, and Marketing. I complete my studies at the end of 2008 after which I will focus on dusoto full-time. During my time at Ross, I have been a member of the Frankel Commercialization Fund, a pre-seed venture fund, where I served as the Fund's board observer for one of its portfolio companies and led a due diligence team in assessing a potential investment. I spent three years working for Booz Allen Hamilton as an IT strategy consultant providing consulting services to Fortune 500 companies and international governments, where I helped to start an IT and technology-focused strategy group. I have deep experience with IT and technology strategy development, economic and business analyses. Prior to Booz Allen, I spent a year working for a start-up technology outsourcing firm as a corporate development associate. During my tenure there, I worked with a small team to launch a new business unit and was responsible for technology project management, including development of a lead generation management system, client management and development of strategic business partnerships and alliances.
