From First-Gen to Forbes

I Was Afraid of My Future.

Growing up as a first-generation high school graduate in rural Germany, this isn’t the typical story of a Vice President at Goldman Sachs—or Forbes 30 Under 30.

Instead of preparing for college, I channeled all my energy into video games. At age 16, I became the world champion of the fastest-selling game at the time, beating 13 million players to complete all levels 1 to 99.

Later in life, my mentors and I translated this laser focus to reach the “next level” into a broader strategy for realizing my full potential.

Stanford, Harvard, Oxford, Cambridge

With $190k in scholarships, I designed my own curriculum and fulfilled my dream of a Stanford MBA and M.A. in Education.

Goldman, McKinsey, White House, IBM

I advised Fortune 500 companies across 30+ countries on $300bn+ of transactions, including the world’s largest technology deals.

eSports World Champion, Ironman, Ultra Runner

From being a former #1 ranked eSports athlete to running 140 miles through the Sahara desert—I have a passion for extreme challenges.
