Mr. BioPharma Business Poet

About Me:

Hello. I have always been described as a people person, and I thrive in opportunities where I present or otherwise interact face-to-face with important individuals. I have a strong track record in financial modeling and quantitative strategy. However, I struggle with (timed) quantitative exams. I believe that I am much more than a quant score.
