    With a focus on e-commerce and internet-related business models, I work together with VCs, incubators, business angels, startups and corporate startups on topics such as market research and mapping, identification and analysis of potential investments, screening, due diligence, operational improvements, growth strategies, and so on. I'm presently working with a $150M early-stage tech VC fund in London, but I'm always looking for interesting work in the industry. Prior to this, I’ve founded two e-commerce-related companies; a digital post-purchase platform for consumers and small businesses, and a curated lifestyle e-commerce store based in Turkey. Earlier experiences include working as a Venture Developer at Rocket Internet (a global online group) as well as M&A, Management Consulting & Strategic Marketing. Technology and Startups are two of my main interests, in part because I believe that they are progressive forces in society. I’m passionate about analysing business models and markets, designing new services/products, and taking ideas through from concept to execution.

    I have bachelors degrees in both physics and philosophy from Harvard College. I have broad experience in operations management and software implementation. I was a submarine officer with the US Navy where I specialized in the operation of nuclear power plants and served as the production manager for many highly complex multi-month refit and installation periods. After the Navy I worked as a research Analyst for Goldman Sachs where I developed top level expertise with excel and an insiders understanding of the financial world. I'm currently working for a tech startup helping them streamline their internal operations and have developed deep knowledge and skill with many software tools (SalesForce, Zendesk, Quickbooks, Pardot, Jira, etc.). I am mainly available late in the evening EST and on the weekends. I have an extremely driven type A personality and after working 24/7 for 6 years while on deployment with the Navy I find myself looking for things to do in my new-found downtime. I think Odesk is an incredible idea and I'm happy to dive in on almost any type of work.  less
