Originally from Charlotte, NC, I spent the past 4 years working in Deloitte's Mergers, Acquisitions, & Divestitures group in Boston. I primarily assisted private equity and strategic clients in assessing the financial performance and accuracy of acquisition targets. Drawing on my passion for M&A and finance, I decided to pursue an MBA to further develop my finance skills and to build on my leadership traits to better serve clients. I ultimately chose Ross because of its experiential learning opportunities, well-rounded curriculum, and collaborative culture. My time at Ross has exceeded my expectations. I have been blown away by the supportive, tight-knit community and the powerful, eager-to-help network. I know that the Ross experience will prepare me for success in my post-MBA career and provide the opportunity to build lifelong relationships with my classmates. I spent my summer after my MBA1 year completing an investment banking internship with BlackArch partners in Charlotte, NC, where I will be returning post-graduation. Outside of Ross, you can catch me watching baseball, trying to develop a respectable golf game, or hanging out with my wife, Makenzie, and our dog, Camden.
