"My four years of undergrad defined much of who I am as a person as it was a stark contrast from my upbringing in the rural south..."

As children, we're all asked the question "What do you want to be when you grow up?" How did you answer?

I first wanted to be an engineer, then an architect, then a surgeon.

What have been the most defining moments along your career path?

My four years of undergrad defined much of who I am as a person as it was a stark contrast from my upbringing in the rural south; my time spent with Goldman taught me most of what I know today professionally, and my time working for the Associate Group (Berkman family) taught me what I don't know.

How did you get your big breaks?

All through my relationships with people, perhaps being in the right place at the right time.

What was the best advice you received when you were first starting out in your career?

To always be opportunistic and to always pace myself.

What have you learned from your experience?

That betting on people is usually smarter than betting on business models.

What most excites you about your job right now?

I'm in school right now, so I should probably think about getting a job sometime soon.

What would you like to have achieved by the last day of your career?

To have actually built something that has a positive impact on the world.
