I started my career flipping burgers while in high school, then became a rock star before deciding on getting some proper education at a university with a ridiculously high admissions GPA requirement.
I financed my school tuition by becoming a
journalist modern day beggar (even gave an unsuccessful shot at self-employment) and doing business development for a student-run nonprofit. During the course of my studies I took part in a selective innovation management program (where we developed a crazy idea that never saw the light of day) and helped start a finance student club.
I broke into the amazing world of ever-delayed project deadlines, ridiculous valuations and big cash burn rates also known as mobile apps when I joined a very successful games studio as part of their finance team. I didn't get to play any games, but I learned about number crunching and analytics.
My recklessness brought me to the land of Gangnam Style as an exchange student at a pretty decent school that almost no one has ever heard about, where I gave a shot at a couple of e-learning business ideas. One of them got into a government-run accelerator program and the other became a runner-up at what apparently is one of the largest hackathons in the world.
Upon graduating I joined the marketing team of an early stage
Pinterest clone photo sharing site with a notable founding team. After learning about product placement and customer acquisition I relocated to the Big Smoke, where I now help disrupt the taxi business around the world.
