I graduated from The College of William & Mary with a degree in finance and history, and was captain of the varsity men’s tennis team while I was there. After graduation, I became an investment banking analyst at Lazard Freres, focusing on structuring and implementing bulge-bracket M&A deals across a variety of industries. I then transitioned to venture capital as an Associate at Sandbox Industries where I primarily focused on sourcing and completing diligence on Series A and Series B food/agriculture technology startups until I enrolled at Fuqua. Upon graduating with my MBA, I joined the Strategy and Partnerships team at Clara Foods, a food biotechnology company.
