My Story

I’m the founder of Fuze8, a real estate tech startup based in Austin, TX. I’m a Forbes Fellow and have been involved in entrepreneurship for 11 years. My interests include startups, future tech, supporting female entrepreneurs, and sustainability.

I work with startups to create high level strategy that yields results. I’ve worked with companies to refine their business model, optimize for CAC & LTV, create their fundraising strategy, build a brand, and much more. I specialize in the areas of business strategy, marketing, product, and design thinking (for which I also run workshops).
