What gets me out of bed in the morning

I chose to become a lawyer so that I could be a team member of many different businesses as opposed to being involved in only one. As a lawyer, I consider each business I represent as if were my own.I love being a part of so many people’s ideas and creative journeys. I get out of bed to play my role in their adventures.

An entrepreneur I admire

Kristo Käärmann and Taavet Hinrikus, who founded Transferwise, and the other brave entrepreneurs starting new fintech banks. These fintechs, and many other startups, are remaking industries which are critical to our lives. I admire these entrepreneurs for their ability to be brave, take a chance on a vision, and then execute until it becomes reality. These entrepreneurs face mountains of opposition. I want to play my role in helping make their fight and their journey more successful.
