Mr. National Security Advisor
Originally from the Midwest, I got involved in politics over 5 years ago. I worked for a Congressman and was given increasing responsibilities. I then advised his US Senate campaign on policy, and upon winning the race, became an advisor on national security issues in the Senate. I recently accepted a job at a major trade association doing International Relations.

Big Life Wins:
In my time in Congress, I had the privilege of working on really interesting projects, including the establishment of the US Space Force. Also led a division of a foreign policy non-profit – a great learning experience. And in my new job, I’ve traveled around the world meeting with foreign governments on energy policy/regulations.
Post MBA Goal:
Honestly, I need to do some introspection here. I know long-term I’d like to make a difference back in the Midwest, perhaps in a role helping companies expand operations/sales internationally.
