How does this work?

Passionate world traveler, technologist, surfer and business development executive with 5 years of experience growing a SaaS business from $500K -> $8M ARR. I am currently exploring opportunities to apply my experience and partner with a SaaS organization which shares my passion for tackling big problems and making a positive impact on the way people work in 2020 and beyond. I believe that as individuals we are the sum of our experiences, with each new one adding to our unique value. My diverse background includes: • Playing a key role in growing revenue at Procurify from $500K -> $8M ARR • Helping to protect traditional culture and send youth to school in Peru as the CFO of a charity called Mosqoy • Learning to critically assess a company’s strategy and financial health as an accountant at KPMG LLP • Creating solutions for an international company called The Yacht Week to manage its operational finances in Croatia • Mastering the fine art of exceptional service at Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts • Exploring new cultures by travelling to 35 different countries and counting I love to meet new people and am always interested in opportunities to learn, give back, or discuss an idea. Send me a message to connect with me personally.
