We’re switching things up for today’s episode in that I’ll be the one being interviewed. My background certainly isn’t yet as impressive as any of my guests. However, I thought it might be good to give my listeners a window into the host’s background and also share some of the insights I’ve gained from doing the podcast so far. One of my best friends Alberto Riveroll Usabiaga will be hosting today’s episode and it will flow similarly to other episodes. We’ll get into my upbringing on the seacoast of New Hampshire, the impact that tennis and martial arts has had on my life, my experience in private equity, and my takeaways so far from the podcast.
