Words That Changed My Life
“If it’s not fun, why do it?” — Ben & Jerry’s Ice Cream Slogan
How I Want to Change the World
I want to put my trained artistic eye to work with the analytical skills learned at Babson to create dynamic products that delight consumers.
What the World Needs from Entrepreneurs Today
Entrepreneurs today are hybrids: they take action and they carefully analyze their target market and consumers. With the current shallow state of economic pockets, more than ever, we need entrepreneurs who have the business savvy to convince supporters to help make dreams reality.
What You Need to Know about Babson
Babson will force you to become comfortable with dealing with ambiguity, whether you like it or not! It is deeply engrained in the learning model, and while it is difficult, it is what sets us apart from other MBAs. Pushing forward in the face of ambiguity is at the core of the entrepreneurial mindset and problem-solving skills that we develop at Babson. We take action!
My Proudest Moment in Business
Seeing the New Art of the Americas Wing at the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston through to its completion from its inception. It was an honor to collaborate with architects, exhibition designers, case manufacturers, and curators from around the world to deliver a re-invigorated story of American art in the context of one of the finest collections in the world.
My Personal Brand
Dynamic leader and cross-functional manager, who has the creative passion and energy to motivate and mobilize effective teams.
How I Define Entrepreneurship
“Taking the leap.”
