Interests

I have always been curious about the world around me and have always wanted to bring new knowledge and ideas to business management. In addition, I have always had the ambition to influence the way people think and how businesses could be managed differently through the lenses of my consulting, teaching and research.

As far as other interests are concerned, I like playing tennis, basketball, reading and traveling. I am a very motivated individual, looking forward to turning ideas into practice, with a very well balanced approach that combines ambition, creativity and risk appetite.
