"It's kind of fun to do the impossible" - Walt Disney

Who I Am  

A Little About Me

Undergraduate sophomore at the University of Southern California studying Business Administration. Rather than minor, I plan to round out my education with courses that interest me the most such as consulting, finance, economics, and international culture courses. My career interests lie in management consulting, finance, and accounting. I hope to do one of these options at the international level either through travel or by living in a new country. In school I am a part of the Marshall Business Network, Moneythink, and Global Brigades at Marshall. Outside of school I love listening to podcasts, playing golf, and trying new foods and restaurants.

Interesting Factoid
