My Academic Journey

Education is what remains after one has forgotten what one has learned in school.

Albert Einstein


At a quick glance, here are a few nuggets of knowledge that I’ve acquired at each level of my academic journey.

  • At the Doctoral Level

    I have learned to ask more and better questions, and to make less assumptions. Additionally, I’ve learned that long roads are indeed hard, and perseverance, resilience, and grit are necessary building blocks of success.

  • At the Graduate Level

    At the graduate level I learned how each piece of the business interlocks, supports, builds, and works towards the bigger picture. That bigger picture is actually incredibly large, nuanced, detailed, and full of people just like you and me.

  • At the Undergraduate Level

    Here is where I learned two things: the concept of “overnight success” typically comes after years of hard work, and luck is preparation waiting for an opportunity. These were, of course, learned in hindsight.
