He graduated with a B.B.A. in Finance, Accounting and Economics from the University of Wisconsin – Madison.

The most daring thing I’ve done was becoming a canoeing guide in northern Minnesota’s Boundary Waters after my freshman year at Wisconsin. Despite a serious lack of prior canoeing/camping experience (my family only went “glamping” semi-frequently growing up), one of my professors urged me to apply for the job as an opportunity to grow by getting out of my comfort zone. She was right. While I had a lot to learn during training, and many of the Boy Scouts I was leading were more experienced than I was, I became confident in my ability to develop new skills, build trust among teams and be successful in challenging new environments.

The work experience that has influenced me the most is my first job at a local custard shop. I started as a busser shortly after I turned 16 and worked my way up to managing the front end of the restaurant by the time I left for college. In addition to hiring and developing many young employees like myself, the owner was extremely generous and invested in making my hometown a great place to live. I saw first-hand how small businesses and their owners can have meaningful impacts on their communities, and I’m excited to work with similar, values-driven entrepreneurs here at Cranemere.

When I’m not working, I’m doing something active, ideally outside. I’ve been involved in sports for my entire life, playing baseball, football and hockey growing up. While my more recent experience as a canoeing guide in college sparked my interest in camping, canoeing and hiking, it can be challenging to participate in those activities in NYC. More often, I go to the gym, run along the West Side Highway or play basketball with my friends. Either way, I find I bring more focus and energy to my work when I’m physically active on a regular basis.
