Job Description

Employment History

I've been with Robinhood for a few months.  Prior to that I was at AWS for about three years. Prior to AWS, I worked in private equity owned Med-tech companies (Vyaire and Physio-Control). Vyaire builds ventilators and Physio builds defibrillators. AWS is a really great place to build a finance career with loads of data and engineers who really value having Finance at the table. My experience prior to AWS has been in the med-tech space with a focus on companies owned by private equity (Bain Capital and APAX partners).


I did my undergrad at Seattle U, majoring in Economics and have a Masters degree in Finance from Notre Dame (Go Irish!).

Mentoring Objectives & Scope

I am looking to help students launch their careers whether in corporate finance, product management, entrepreneurship, or whatever interests them. I ask that students come to our meetings with a curious mind and a commitment to improvement. My favorite professor at Seattle U used to say "90% is showing up".

When and where do you hold meetings with your students?

We can meet in person at Seattle U or in Seattle. We will figure out a good time for everyone to meet.
