Having grown up in Palo Alto, CA, I have had a long-standing interest in the tech ecosystem. I transitioned from studying Computer Science to Business Administration while at USC. Upon graduating, I was looking for a place to continue developing a tangible business and accounting skillset, and the MAcc program at Ross seemed like the perfect place to do so, offering a blend of course flexibility and quality instruction.
I began my investment banking recruiting cycle with no prior banking work experience; as such, I was required to learn all of the technicals from scratch. Ross was instrumental in my success, offering me everything from a tremendous alumni network to technical peer coaching sessions. After a couple years of sell-side advisory work at GCA, I transitioned to Apple's Corporate Development team to focus on building exciting products and services alongside product and engineering teams through M&A, investments, partnerships, and more.
