Tell us about your journey. My professional journey has been one of wonder and restlessness that made me the person that I am today. It started off by getting a finance degree and spending some time working in investment banking. I then decided to take the leap into tech mostly because of the market's condition at the time. So I started my own company trying to help people find their creative voice. I firmly believe that social media is the future of advertising and I like what I do because it merges two industries that I love: business and technology, numbers and innovation. 

What's your favorite part of your day? Going through my clients' positive performance indicators.

When do you feel most successful? When I start working on an exciting new project.

What do you do to recharge when you’re feeling drained? I like to travel as much as possible.

What do you know today that you wish you would have known when you first got started as an entrepreneur? Make sure you are well funded and have the support of your partners. 

How do you optimize your day? I'm an early riser so I like getting a lot of my work done in the morning and leave afternoons open for meetings.

Who is the person/people who allowed you to imagine more? The people behind the movie production company Dreamworks and SpaceX. Although they are not related their work is really admirable. 

What does imagining more mean to you and your story? I see in Imagine More core values and ideas that are very similar to what we do. That's is exactly what we are looking for. People that believe in the power of connecting and helping brands tell their story. 

If you could do more of one thing every day what would it be? I would work out more. Staying healthy is very important to me.
