Welcome to my personal website

I work in private markets technology at Chronograph, the world’s leading provider of portfolio monitoring solutions for private equity. I also enjoy blogging on the side. 

Finance background

Before joining Chronograph, I came from a finance background. I studied at Wharton and previously worked in investment banking at Lazard and as an investor at The Carlyle Group. I continue to be involved with private markets at Chronograph.

Today, I work at Chronograph and get to contribute to our next generation technology that help institutional Limited Partners and General Partner investors realize unparalleled operational efficiencies and data transparency.


During college, I studied Russian and developed a passion for Russian language and culture. I blog about this on websites like Russian Film Hub, Russian Enthusiast, and RUS & SOV (see below). I am also a Fellow at the Stanford U.S.-Russia Forum.
