Welcome Home

I became a U.S. citizen earlier this month.

When I first moved to America 14 years ago it took me a few weeks to realize that “How are you?” wasn’t really a question about my health, and I learned not to get offended if my interlocutor had already moved on and was 50 feet down the hall before I finished answering the question. Since that time I have never stopped learning and never ceased to be amazed at this country and its people.

I found in America a fertile ground for entrepreneurial ideas that would have seemed too disruptive and too ambitious almost anywhere else. I also found visionary investors who believed in these ideas. As a result, today I’m proud to lead a team of 400 people who live and breathe our goal to transform the banking industry to make it more consumer friendly, more transparent and more efficient.

This country was built on principles of freedom and responsibility that empower individuals to pursue their dreams and contribute to the greater good; these are a source of inspiration for people all over the world. I’m proud to call it home.
