What is your role?

My role at Next Gen is Director of Growth. This means I work to scale two of our premier communication channels - Next Gen Roundup and Next Gen Summit. I augment and analyze market strategy to reach more entrepreneurs worldwide.

What excites you most about the Next Gen ecosystem?

Every single thing about the Next Gen Ecosystem excites me. The energy and the grit coming from everyone in this community is beyond exciting. Every person in this ecosystem is living their passion and it's hard to find something as inspiring and thrilling as that.

What inspired you to get into your line of work?       

I love being surrounded by entrepreneurs because their vitality and passion radiates such strong energy, and that energy inspires me. I cannot think of a better role for me than to be a part of keeping that momentum alive for all of the entrepreneurs of the world.       

What are your best hacks for productivity?

My best hacks for productivity are actually very simple, yet overlooked. Getting enough sleep each night, and getting a quick workout in each day are two vital tools in realigning focus. I've never had more productive days than those that I was well-rested and energized from a workout.     

What does your morning routine look like?

Every morning I take a shower and drink a cup of coffee. During this time I don't do or really think about anything else. I use this time as sort of a moving meditation, because it really helps me to rewire my brain and feel more energized for the day ahead.
