Why did you choose Daniels?

Daniels’ challenge-based-learning curriculum offers students a chance to build hard and soft skills in real-life situations. The professors are highly invested in both the student’s personal and career success. A combination of these variables were key drivers in my decision to join the Daniels College of Business.

Previous Education

BS in Economics and Finance, University of Connecticut.

Pre-Grad School Experience

Prior experience in real estate finance as both an underwriter and business development lead in both the U.S. (Washington, D.C.) and Uganda.

Post Grad School Goal

With my education from Daniels, I plan on transitioning back into the financial sector in a managerial role to leverage the skills and experiences gained from the school.


When not engaged in school work, I enjoy playing soccer, hiking and attending live music events.
