6. What has been your proudest achievement in your career? Why?
Doing business in Korea as a representative of the U.S. Government. Both of my parents are Korean and I was born and raised in Brazil and I immigrated to the U.S. when I was 15 years old. I went to Korea for the first time in my life in 2009 while working as a Real Estate Development Consultant at Alvarez & Marsal Real Estate Advisory Services. In that capacity, I authored a Public Private Partnership (PPP) feasibility study that involved the Department of Defense Education Activity (DoDEA), United States Forces Korea (USFK) on the American side, and the Ministry of Education, Ministry of Foreign Affairs, and Ministry of National Defense on the Korean side.
