I would love to connect with students. In addition or instead of attending the Schmooze, I am available for one:one meetings during the weekend. Drop me an email and we'll arrange a time to meet. I arrive on Thursday.

How did you get where you are? (e.g., education, brief work history, mentors)

Please refer to LinkedIn profile

What lessons have you learned along the way that you'd like to pass on to current Reed students?

Happy to discuss the many lessons I have learned

I think the key thing is to always do what you love and what you are interested in--do not worry what others think about your decisions

In what ways you think you can help Reed students?

Explaining work in the non profit and finance fields (especially in NYC)

Decision-making around getting an MBA

Career transition experience

What else should students know about you? (e.g., volunteer engagement, avocations, interests)
