Why did you choose Daniels?

I chose Daniels because of the unique curriculum, the access to Denver networks and the quality of the professors. In this curriculum we get both a wide breadth and depth of subject matter via unique classes and the experiential learning of the challenges. Infused into everything we do is an emphasis on networking in Denver and Colorado, which drives home Daniels’ dedication to keeping talent in our great state. Finally, these professors are second to none. They are very well connected, incredibly knowledgeable and approachable. Most MBA programs do not have a faculty that is as willing to help students outside of class.

Pre-grad school experience

I worked full time at El Pomar Foundation. I was part of their two-year fellowship program.

Post-grad school goal

I’m not sure. I am hoping to go into product management or design, but this is a constantly moving target.


I like to camp, hike, garden, hunt, fish and cook. I love cooking and spending time outdoors because they are two great ways to better connect with friends and family.
