Mr. Chemical Engineering Dad

About Me:

Personally, I am very enthusiastic about lifelong learning and philanthropy, perfectly suiting me in my professional life as a venture capitalist. Outside of work, I enjoy playing ice hockey, and spending time with my now 7-year-old son.


Undergrad School: Virginia Tech

Undergrad Major: Chemical Engineering

GPA: 3.50

GMAT: 710

Age: 27,  Ethnicity: White

Extracurriculars: Global Medical Brigades - Virginia Tech Chapter President & Founder (Raised over $500k, managed over 30 undergrads, recruited two domestic doctors, and planned trip logistics for a medical mission trip abroad to impoverished communities lacking healthcare resources each year of undergrad)

Work History:

Title: Associate

Industry: Venture Capital

Company: Boutique Firm

Length of Employment: 2 yrs, 6 mos

Title: Analyst

Industry: Consulting

Company: Fortune 100 Top 10

Length of Employment: 1 yr

Big Life Wins:

My biggest win to date is making a successful and risky career change from government consulting at the DoS to venture capital. I stepped into a two-man shop with limited resources. The Fund was unproven in an underserved ecosystem. Ultimately, the Fund generated measurable value to our LPs, resulting in a successful raise of a larger fund, taking AUM from $22mm to $54m. Since my job is in an underserved area for innovation, my VC experience is very community oriented and has grown the ecosystem substantially.

Post MBA Goal:

My immediate goal is to join the operating group of a high growth startup or venture capital firm that has an established track record of success. This short-term goal will enable me to build a reputation and track record to ultimately achieve my long-term goal: forming an early-stage, med tech focused venture fund that is social impact driven. I have a strong history of working alongside funds with established track records of success and have had the chance to collaborate with many of them on past deals. This experience will help me optimize the value of an MBA and network into my short-term aspirations.


Target School: Wharton

Status: Open

Considering: Harvard, MIT Sloan, Stanford GSB

    Hi Mr. Chemical Engineering Dad, this is Julie-Anne Heafey from mbaMission. I think you’ve got some excellent differentiators in your profile, but for me the holdup is the detail on your work experience. The specifics matter in these situations and boutique VC might mean something very impressive or something that leaves the admissions committee scratching their heads…doubling AUM could be amazing or less impressive if the starting number was very small. So – hard to say how that will land at Wharton unless I know more. What did you invest in and who were the other investors? If bigger names, that will help. I also am unclear when you were a consultant- that is mentioned but what that was …

    Hi Chemical Engineering Dad, Melisa and mom of 3 from Stratus Admissions. Let’s start by addressing your questions. Maybe I am biased (and I did not have my children while obtaining my MBA) but I think being a father is a plus to your profile. As an American male in finance, you want to show what unique perspective you can offer to classroom discussions and parental views are generally less common. You might think about how your role as a father has impacted decisions you’ve made or paths you’ve taken. Again, playing a role in growing a VC is going to be a plus. VC is a popular post-MBA goal and the fact that you bring this experience to the classroom is fantastic. Think …
