FROM YOUR FOUNDER
MAFF CVA MBA
You will find that I am casual (grew up in California), but serious (moved to Boston). I am accomplished, finding my non-traditional path early. I have assembled a unique combination of degrees, private skills and credentials; important for you as I am capable of combining engagement-specific technological, financial, and intangible factors with case-law to generate defensible opinions.
