Meet the Career Peer Advisors
I see my myself either starting a hedge fund or working in private equity. I'm also fascinated by the idea of startups and hope to use innovation and entrepreneurship as a means of solving some of the world's most complex problems.
I'm a Resident Assistant, love anything investment related, play collegiate chess, work out 6 days a week, and read a ton. I look forward helping you create a competitive edge amongst your peers and maximize your chances of winning.

My career goal is to practice law. I ultimately hope to be retained by major casting agencies, athletic teams, and/or corporations to facilitate regulatory compliance in business practice.
