After months of careful analysis and consultation with my Magic 8 ball, here is my World Cup Bracket:

Group A - Brazil/Croatia 

Group B - I have Spain/Chile but I'm not confident that Spain still has it. Could be Chile/Spain instead. 

Group C - Colombia/Ivory Coast (but if Ya Ya is not fit, could be Japan) 

Group D - Italy/Uruguay

Group E - Switzerland (!)/France (They won't miss Ribery)

Group F - Argentina/Nigeria

Group G - Germany/Portugal (no amount of flag waving will help the US)

Group H - Belgium/Russia

QF: Brazil/Uruguay, Germany/Nigeria, Italy/Spain, Argentina/Belgium

Semifinals: Brazil defeats Germany | Argentina defeats Italy on PK

Final - Brazil 3-1 over Argentina.

Pharma/Biotech consulting, entrepreneurism, polymath
Introduction
I'm a Managing Partner at Lacerta Bio , a pharmaceutical & biotech consulting firm specializing in business development and licensing. We help pharma and biotech companies acquire, in-license, divest, or out-license assets, technologies, and businesses. Founded in 2010, we serve clients around the world. 

In November, 2014, Lacerta Bio merged with Copenhagen-based Ventac Partners. Ventac has a dual business model based on consulting and new company formation. As the US-based Partner, we will continue to serve the consulting needs of our clients. We will also seek opportunities to form new life science companies around interesting assets coming out of academia and research institutions. 

Here is my LinkedIn profile

When I'm not working, I do what my wife and kids tell me to do, I fix my old house, I run 5K at leisurely, non-competitive paces, and I play Taylor acoustic guitars. I'm also a rabid fan of Tottenham Hotspur FC. I also enjoy travel, especially to London and Continental Europe.

We've been going to Margaritas for years. OK so the beans might be microwaved. But the food overall is quite good, and the service is terrific. Once you get to know the staff, they'll treat you very well.
