Mr. Energy Focus
I like to think of myself as a skilled generalist – engineering undergrad, consulting background – with an energy industry focus, and want to take that to the next level with an elite MBA. I’m fascinated by the “human” side of energy challenges & have the experience to that end; including working for 1.5yr for a 2 week trip to Peru on a water project.

Big Life Wins:
Took a risk leaving my Big4 consulting job to join a construction company with less name recognition. Moved for the guarantee of industry focus and to learn finance function. Have capitalized on the opportunity with rapidly growing responsibilities working on a multibillion-dollar megaproject.
Post MBA Goal:
Looking to build a career answering the questions of how we can build an economy that’s environmentally sustainable while spreading the quality of life benefits stemming from access to energy. Think the most likely route to this goal is either through a top consulting shop or directly to an industry major.
