Born and raised in metro Detroit, I've always held a fondness for Ann Arbor, even when attending Michigan State. I spent my early career working with manufacturers, many in the automotive industry, to support commercial strategy through market research. I came back to business school to gain deeper expertise in technology commercialization to accelerate the clean energy transition and work to mitigate the worst effects of climate change. While I have an apartment in Ann Arbor, my partner and our pitbull princess, Juliet, live at our house near Detroit. Ask me about Ann Arbor's veggie food scene, my favorite energy tech startup, or when I want to play tennis/pickleball!
