"Working on large, important transactions was enough to keep me motivated through the long hours in investment banking."

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

I alway wanted to be an "international businessman", although I wasn't really sure what that meant..and still don't.

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

The first pitchbook that I put together while working at an investment bank was the first time I felt like I was going "all out" professionally. I hadn't slept in a couple of days and the last couple of hours before the meeting were really intense. I felt a great sense of accomplishment afterwards, even though in the end it was a pretty standard presentation.

How did you get your big breaks?

My high school running career was extremely helpful in the college admissions process. Since college, a bunch of my "breaks" came through the network I have developed of friends, classmates and colleagues. I've seen that you really never know who is going to be helpful in your next job search.

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

Don't get drunk at work parties.

What have you learned from your experience?

My experience in banking taught me how to juggle many tasks at once, how to interract with senior management of major corporations, and how to survive on small amounts of sleep.

What most excites you about your job right now?

I'm a student. In general, working on large, important transactions was enough to keep me motivated through the long hours in investment banking.

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

To be honest, as of my last day working I would like to have enough money to never have to think about money again.
