I am a technology junkie, currently pursuing a full-time MBA at INSEAD (Singapore campus). Amid all the one-oh-one’s in Finance, Accounting, Statistics, and Economics, I am working on a few travel tech projects and enjoying being part ofTravel Capitalist Ventures. Before moving to Asia, I worked at travel technology start-up EVERBREAD, where I learned all aboutthe world of GDSs, AVL, COS, POS, WTFs and all the three-letter abbreviations of this crazy industry. I also had the pleasure to work with Morten Lund, who to this day disturbs my mainstream thinking by telling me how to connect the dots. Prior to my start-up experience, I slaved away as a consultant in NYC and LON (Opera Solutions), where, put in pure consultese, I worked on a number of Fortune 500 companies, improving their bottom line.
In all seriousness, I did some good work for a telco company, a top aluminum provider, and even a bathroom fixtures manufacturer among the typical suspects of banks, retailers, and others. I guess I learned how to crunch numbers in excel and do power point slides to the point where it mattered to me whether the bullet point was 80% dark blue and whether I can trigger a picture change in a cell through vlookups (by the way — possible).
Naturally, I was all prepared for my professional life with my B.A. in Government from Harvard, Class of 2007, but nevertheless I was (and still am) really proud of my thesis work on the UN and Humanitarian Interventions. I enjoyed reading Kant, Plato, Mill and Rawls, and I honestly hated “Dinosaurs and their relatives”, but science, art, and overall, education, require a bit of sacrifice.
All in all, I have had an amazing trip so far, both geographically and professionally and I love to brag about it on twitter, facebook, and other social media, so if interested, use the links below.
