My passion for M&A is fueled by the intellectual challenge, strategic impact, industry fascination, and collaborative nature of the field. The complexity of M&A transactions stimulates my intellect, pushing me to develop creative solutions and hone strategic thinking skills. I find immense satisfaction in understanding the nuances of different industries and uncovering the strategic rationale behind M&A activity.

You'll often find me hitting the gym, discovering new eateries and hotspots in the city, delving into non-fiction reads / tuning in to thought-provoking podcasts.

The best part of being on the Ascend team is our collaborative culture and supportive environment. We value each member's unique contributions, fostering innovation and growth. This supportive environment not only fuels my personal growth but also strengthens our collective efforts toward achieving success for our clients and the team.
