    FinTech. Entrepreneurship. Puppies.

    Looking for smarter people than me, solving bigger problems than I can solve.

Jimmy recently completed receiving his MBA from the Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania, majoring in Entrepreneurship and Operations Research.

    "If you want to build a ship,
    don't drum up people to collect wood

    and don't assign them tasks and work,

    but rather teach them

    to long for the endless immensity of the sea."
