I’m a husband, father, management consultant, and member of the Weekend Executive MBA Class of 2017.

I live in Charlotte, N.C., and work at KPMG Advisory helping clients develop and execute on their risk management, finance, and operational transformation strategies. Prior to consulting, I served as an infantry unit leader in the U.S. Marine Corps, leading counterinsurgency and humanitarian aid missions in support of Operations Iraqi Freedom and Enduring Freedom.

I chose to pursue an MBA to build on my CPA background and broaden my general management skill set, particularly in the areas of strategy, marketing, and operations. I have a passion for service, leading and being a part of high-performing teams, and for tackling complex problems that make a difference for people and organizations—reasons which made Fuqua the perfect fit.

I’m an avid crossfitter and general fitness enthusiast. Outside of work, school, or the gym, I enjoy spending time with family and friends, traveling, listening to podcasts, poker, and N.C. craft-beer.
