My passion lies in mentoring both startup and non-startup founders on the ideation process. With my diverse experience as both a founder and team member of various organizations, I possess both artistic and analytical skills.

I have aided numerous individuals and startups in developing their ideas, providing guidance on how to iterate and pivot to achieve success. This involves thorough analysis of the idea and market research to determine its viability.

As a mentor, I often play the role of an idea therapist, actively listening and asking the right questions to help individuals reach their desired goals.

Seeing the impact of my mentorship on the success of the individuals and startups I work with is incredibly fulfilling.
