Understanding why people make the decisions they do has been a passion of mine since I took Introduction to Economics my freshman year at Wake Forest University. After graduation, I followed this passion to a digital marketing and technology company in Charlotte, NC where I spent four years working in operations and product management. The decision to go back to school full-time to pursue my MBA was driven by two main factors - I wanted to improve upon my leadership skills, but I also wanted to pivot careers into consumer packaged goods as a way of working with brands and products that people use daily. Those two motivators, coupled with my desire to be in a highly collaborative and action-based learning environment, brought me to Ross and it's been a great fit. Outside of school, you'll most likely find me either spending time with my wife and our dog exploring Ann Arbor and the surrounding areas or watching some sort of sporting event.
