As a student, where was your favorite spot to spend time at Stern?
I really enjoyed spending time in Tisch Hall, in the study nook area with the glass skylights of Gould Plaza above. One time, James Franco walked by and asked me where the bathroom was!
If you could visit any place in the world, where would you choose to go and why?
I’d like to visit some remote areas of Africa, including Tanzania and Madagascar. It would be awesome to learn more about the culture in these regions.
What is your favorite childhood memory?
Some of my fondest childhood memories include playing outside with our three dogs. We had a Cocker Spaniel, a Rottweiler, and a Boxer and while I loved them all, the Cocker Spaniel was truly mine and I named him Nippy.
What is your favorite memory from your time at Stern?
Visiting Radio City Music Hall for Stern graduation. I remember standing on stage to deliver remarks and feeling honored to be in the company of so many terrific, accomplished individuals. It was magical to be there and share in the joy of so many students on their special day.
Why do you choose to stay engaged with Stern as an alumnus?
I choose to stay engaged with Stern because I really enjoyed my time as a student and am so grateful for the opportunities the School has afforded me. I was able to forge incredible relationships with my professors and peers, many of whom have become lifelong friends. Stern was also critical in helping me relaunch my career, allowing me to move from Bank of America, to Google, to Amazon.
