I have over 8 years experience in the Food Industry with responsibilities ranging from plant engineer to Corporate Development and FP&A. I am looking for partners in the US so that we can create a US-based hedge fund focused on South American Assets. My alma mater is the University of Arkansas where I graduated with a BA and an MSc in Operations Management. I served in the United States Army for 6 years where I was deployed several times, including to Iraq. After completing my military obligation, I moved to Brazil in order to begin my career in Finance. I received an MBA in International Business from FIA/FEA at the University of Sao Paulo. I am a 2019 CFA Level 3 Candidate. My hobbies are: playing the guitar and drums, longboarding, mountain biking, scuba diving, reading non-fiction books and giving financial advice to low-income households.
