What has been your favorite part of Atlanta so far? What has made it such a great place to earn an MBA?

My favorite part of Atlanta thus far is its diversity which offers innumerable options for amazing and diverse cuisine. This relates to my favorite part of the MBA being the interesting and diverse group of people I call classmates.

Aside from your classmates and location, what was the key part of the Scheller MBA programming that led you to choose this business school and why was it so important to you?

Georgia Tech has the Technology Innovation: Generating Economic Results (TI:GER) program which is an exciting opportunity to embed into multiple technology startup ecosystems. This is important to me because I have an entrepreneurial spirit and gaining exposure to these ecosystems is interesting and growth oriented.

What course, club or activity have you enjoyed the most so far at Georgia Tech?

My favorite activity thus far has been a shotgun shooting event that allowed for about 20 MBA students to have a blast and decompress while learning to shoot sporting clays in a safe and positive environment.

Describe your biggest accomplishment in your career so far:

I consider one of my biggest accomplishments being serving in the United States Army Special Forces Regiment as a Special Forces Medic. Serving this country as part of a highly accomplished and capable team was a surreal and life-changing opportunity.

Describe your biggest accomplishment as an MBA student so far:

My favorite accomplishment in the MBA thus far is serving as a Veteran representative and MBA Ambassador in which I have already been able to share my experiences with prospective candidates and help them consider what an MBA at Scheller could mean for them. Helping Veterans recruit to Scheller is particularly rewarding because I am seeing first-hand how much opportunity there is in this world outside of the military and helping “pay it forward” with other Veterans is really rewarding.

What has been your best memory as an MBA so far?

One of my best memories thus far is running with one of my dogs (Gus) at the weekly Pi Mile run. He enjoys running with my classmates and ensures that we all have a pleasant run while building relationships with my peers.

What advice would you give to help potential applicants gain admission into Georgia Tech Scheller’s MBA program?

The advice that I would give potential applicants is to reach out to Georgia Tech MBA Ambassadors. The community in the MBA program is invested in finding the best candidates and they are willing to help in any way they can. You miss every shot you don’t take, so reach out to me.
