I am a native of North Carolina and a graduate of both Duke (Bachelor's in Electrical & Computer Engineering and Computer Science, 2002) and Stanford (MBA, 2007) Universities. After graduating from Stanford in June 2007, I jumped back into the working world in Mozambique, Africa in a three-month stint as a Volunteer Consultant for Technoserve, after which I returned to the US to join the San Francisco office of the consulting firm McKinsey & Company in October 2007 as an Associate.
In July of 2008, as I approached the end of my first year at McKinsey, I got an opportunity to go to Shanghai, China, and work with McKinsey's macroeconomics research arm, the McKinsey Global Institute, as an MGI Fellow on several projects examining how the Chinese consumer market will develop over the next 20 years. My year in Shanghai culminated in the publication of a report on how we think the likely direction of Chinese policy in a number of areas will affect the consumption share of China's economy. If you're interested, you can find our report online at the following location:"If you've got it, spend it: Unleashing the Chinese Consumer".
Following my year in China, I returned to the US to live in lovely Seattle, Washington, where I now reside and am again working in client service as a member of the local McKinsey office.
I make changes to my website only infrequently, and it is almost always incomplete or broken in some way, so please excuse the mess. If you wish to contact me, please e-mail me.
As an experiment, I'm attempting to use RSS to publish here the most recent "favorite" photo that I have taken and uploaded to Flickr. You can see the entire set here.
