My Future Goals

Right now, I considering either economics research in the field of Urban Economics or working for the Federal Reserve. I'm undecided, but coming closer!`

My Advice for Exploring Graduate Business School

If you are undecided, try everything! If you have decided, still keep an open mind. There is so much out there.

My Experience at Portland State University

My experience at Portland State has been great. I've had access to many opportunities and learning experiences that I would have never expected.

My Background

I am originally from Southern California and moved here when I was 10. I had ambitions of being an astronomer, and went to Cornell to study physics for this reason. Physics did not work out for me and I instead studied music. I took some time off post college to figure things out and ended up deciding on finance. I've been all over, but I think its better to keep your options open to find what you love rather than settling.
