Undergraduate school/major: I attended Duke University and have a degree in political science.

Concentrations: Entrepreneurship and international business.

Activities: Member of the Entrepreneurship and Venture Capital Group, Emerging Markets Group, Africa Business Group, Booth Technology Group, Jewish Business Students Association, Public Speaking and Communication Group, and Wine Club. 

Career plans: I am recruiting to work in a technology company and/or start-up.

Why did you choose to attend Chicago Booth? I chose Booth for its rigorous yet flexible curriculum, growing focus on entrepreneurship and tech, and because of the amazing students, academics, and endless resources.

Use three adjectives to describe your experience at Chicago Booth: Challenging, exciting, and fascinating.

What do you consider a "must visit" place or "must do" activity in Chicago? Start-up pitch night at 1871 (Chicago's digital start-up center), attend a performance at the Chicago Symphony Orchestra for a $10 student ticket, and check out the farmer's market in Lincoln Park.

Ask me about...: The different student clubs, about the city of Chicago, the level of autonomy given to students at Booth, recruiting for tech and entrepreneurship, and being a former consultant at business school.
