I have 15 years of experience in strategy consulting, loyalty/rewards marketing, and have created several successful businesses. I've consulted to numerous startups at various stages from pre-seed through Series D. I have a strong breadth of industry expertise having completed projects and built businesses in travel, financial services, real estate, retail, grocery, gas. I've created rewards programs around the world and managed Membership Rewards partnerships at American Express as well as the Black, Platinum, and Gold Cards and developed a portfolio-wide strategy. I have an MBA from Yale University and my BA from Cornell University. I'm fast and hyper-reliable (that's the New Yorker in me) and pride myself on my multitasking ability (I used to have a day "corporate" job with four of my own successful businesses on the side). I believe in developing a tight plan up front for every project and really focus on iterative development with clients. - Hablo español - Je parle français
