I was born and raised in the Bronx, New York, and prior to Duke I lived in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, and Hoboken, New Jersey, after completing my undergraduate degree at Villanova University in Pennsylvania.

My background is in finance and accounting, and I chose Fuqua for the structure and pace of the program, curriculum and international opportunities, and focus on teamwork and collaboration. I also see Fuqua as a platform to develop my personal leadership style and an opportunity to be surrounded by like-minded people who are also seeking new career challenges. An MBA from Duke has helped enable me to build my business background, gain further international experience, and achieve my professional goals.

I’m also a huge college basketball fan and hope Villanova and Duke don’t have to play each other in the near future.
