Co-Founder and CEO of General Assembly (GA), the tech education company based in New York with 13 campuses worldwide.

Why so successful?
“Persistence and resilience. There have been so many times where taking an entrepreneurial path felt like the difficult, unsafe and risky way to go. It was my persistence that allowed me to overcome the uncertainty. I literally couldn’t get it out of my head.”

No. 1 role model?
Richard Barth, CEO of KIPP and GA board member: “He is an incredible individual, manager and leader. I hope to someday be even close to as good as he is.”
