About the author

I am a second-year MBA student at the Robert H. Smith School of Business. In my (now seemingly distant) past, I was a professional actor and theatre manager in the DC Theatre Industry. Now I’m pursuing an MBA with a focus in marketing for media and consumer goods. From my acting background, I’m obsessed with finding out what makes consumers make the decisions they make. I love new product development, advertising, and consumer insights. (And when I have a few moments I still love to sing, dance, and act on stage and screen.)

At the same time, I’m passionate about my family life. During the first year of school, my wife and I had our third child (all boys!). He arrived two days before my first set of final exams! It turned out to be great timing, so I could use my 5 weeks of holiday break as “paternity leave”.
