What surprised you most about Marshall?
The rigor of the core, and how exceptional the Trojan Network really is!

What do you wish you'd known before attending business school?
How to get more hours in a day - 24 hours simply isn't enough for this wild ride. But seriously, how to optimally prioritize my time across studying, networking, maintaining personal relationships (important and easy to neglect!), and staying fit and healthy. To put it simply, I wish I'd had a better balance of working smart vs. working hard from the start, but I'm learning!

What leadership positions do you hold at Marshall?
AVP of Finance - Business of Entertainment Association, Marshall MBA Ambassador

What is your favorite USC Marshall experience:
The Business of Entertainment Association Trek to NYC was wonderful, as was the Warner Bros./Deloitte Case Competition.  In general, the entertainment-related programming has exceeded my expectations. The Lunch and Learn with Cameron Mazdyasni was a real knockout.

What is your favorite USC Marshall core class:
Corporate Finance with Dean Ku and Scott Abrams - what a dynamic duo! I do want to give a shoutout to Randy Beatty though - I love the performative quality he brings to Accounting.

Which clubs are you involved in?
Business of Entertainment Association, Marshall Finance Association, Marshall Data Analytics Club

Core:
B

Why did you choose Marshall?
For the warmth, literally and figuratively, and for the outstanding exposure to and opportunities in the business of entertainment.
