Born and raised in Chicago. I received my BS and MS in chemical engineering from Northwestern and Case Western Reserve Universities. I worked in the chemical industry for 6 years and later obtained an MBA from the University of Chicago. After completing business school, I went into management consulting which took me to the UK. I ended up calling London home for 25 years while also obtaining a PhD in Business from Cardiff University in Wales. I started several businesses in London and Berlin in the service sector. In 2018, I decided to change gears and not wanting to start another business, I bought a motorcycle parts business in the Denver metro area and moved here in 2018. My Colorado company employs 6 people. I am currently running for State House District 24 for Arvada.
