As many of my friends may know, in addition to my finance background following the satellite industry as both a sell-side analyst and investment banker, I have been a serious mountain climber for several years. I am currently taking time off from my career to complete my ascent of the “7 Summits” – the highest peak on each of the seven continents.
At the end of March, I will be leaving to attempt to climb the final of the seven – Mt. Everest – the highest mountain in the world with an elevation of 29,035 feet.
This expedition is the culmination of an incredible challenge and adventure for me personally. But given the significance of the challenge, I want to make it more than about me. Specifically, I plan to use my Mt. Everest climb as an opportunity to raise money and awareness in support of a worthy cause.
