I was born in New-Jersey to a Polish-American family. My grandparents were entrepreneurs that moved around New York state to buy properties and fix them up after escaping war-torn Poland. As a bookish kid, I joined the Boy Scouts and football team to get out of the house, eventually becoming an Eagle Scout and a benchwarmer.
After a few years of working in a large, corporate environment at Oracle, I realized that I wanted to make my impact through entrepreneurship, and got my MBA at Northwestern's Kellogg School of Management to develop my skillset further.
Outside of work, I love the outdoors and am always on the lookout for new hikes or mountains to snowboard. I'm still an avid reader, and love recommendations.
