Prior to joining White Star Capital in 2020, I worked for 5 years in the Investment Banking division of Scotiabank, an international bank headquartered in Canada. During that time, I focused my efforts on supporting companies on M&A initiatives, capital market financings and business restructurings, across a variety of sectors and geographies.
While working with numbers has always been a big part of my life, it is the human aspect of the job that drew me to VC. Finding, exchanging and supporting entrepreneurs following bold and disruptive visions is a true passion that I have the privilege of calling profession.
On a personal front, I still practice Brazilian jiu-jitsu and used to compete in numerous disciplines such as BJJ, Judo, Muay Thai and MMA. Martial arts, and practicing disciplines born on almost each continent, is one of the very first things that opened my perspective on the world as a child. Today, thanks to White Star’s truly international platform, I have the unique opportunity of constantly rediscovering the world in new ways through technology investing.
As a proud representative of White Star in Canada, here a few Canadian-born artists that I particularly like: Kaytranada, Patrick Watson, Alexandra Stréliski, Denis Villeneuve, Xavier Dolan and obviously, the GOAT, Georges St-Pierre.
