Why did you choose Daniels?

Daniels offered courses, clubs and opportunities that I hadn’t seen elsewhere. Daniels also offered me a scholarship that not only lowered the cost to attend but made me feel wanted. Plus, who doesn’t want to be in the Rocky Mountain region?

Pre-grad school experience

I’ve worked numerous sales jobs and become very personable thanks to them. Also, I incorporated my own side hustle. I would collect and/or purchase junk, like old electronics or used goods, and sell them through numerous sales channels.

Post-grad school goal

To be the boss manaka check collector. In all seriousness, I want to start and operate my own business. Not just any business, but a Fortune 500 kind of business. Maybe I will even turn into a venture capitalist once I make it onto the Forbes 500. However, in the meantime I intend to network, learn continuously and accumulate the skills necessary to run my own gig.


I’m a helicopter pilot (my one true passion) and I enjoy a good book whenever I have timeI love to hike, ski (drop cliffs) and spend time outdoors whenever I can. I play on the DU men’s club lacrosse team. I’m a total foodie—I love eating, critiquing food and sometimes making it if there were only more hours in the dayAlso, I make mean chocolate chip cookies.
