"My work transverses policy and business, and it requires strong intuition of what motivates people - regulators and clients in particular. I have worked on the ground in Russia and Angola, and have worked on projects in Southeast Asia and France.

Utility functions, rule of law, and morality are applicable to my work, since these structural and innate drivers define how individuals think. At Stanford, I concentrated on political theory, which fine-tuned me to always consider these angles. As a result, I bring a unique perspective to the business environment, making it possible for me to quickly learn about a new country, travel there, and immediately start to add value by meeting clients and developing strategy."

"I develop country strategies for Visa's business in the developing world and in highly regulated markets."
