Life & Career Milestones

My path in life has been direct

  • 1.

    I grew up in both the Bronx and Manhattan boroughs in New York.

  • 2.

    I’d frequently have conversations with my mother, a teacher in Manhattan, about doing social good and came to the conclusion that I wanted to solve problems through business.

  • 3.

    I earned my bachelor’s degree from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and an MBA from Columbia University.

  • 4.

    I’ve spent my career utilizing my business skills to lead companies to solve major problems and do social good.

  • 5.

    While leading Hycrete, a nanotechnology company focused on waterproofing concrete, I realized that to solve the water problem, we need to solve agricultural problems.

    Inspired by that connection, I co-founded AeroFarms, a benefit corporation using innovations in vertical farming to change and improve our food system.
