"Things are generally not as good or bad as they seem on a given day."

As children, we're all asked the question "What do you want to be when you grow up?" How did you answer?

Baseball player, actor.

What have been the most defining moments along your career path?

Moving to California after college - Experiencing the ups and downs of the Silicon Valley tech bubble and rebounding in a very challenging job market. - Going to work at the Stanford Management Company. - Being accepted to Stanford Business School.

How did you get your big breaks?

Maintaining good relationships and staying positive and productive when the environment is more challenging. I had good relationships at Stanford Management Company from previous positions and believe those were helpful getting in the door. Once I made it to the interview process, I had to convince the organization of my value by demonstrating a good understanding of the position and the needs of the organization.

What was the best advice you received when you were first starting out in your career?

Sometimes bad things happen to good people. Careers will be full of highs and lows. Understanding that and maintaining focus is a key to long term success.

What have you learned from your experience?

Things are generally not as good or bad as they seem on a given day. Learning perspective and seeking advice from more experienced managers have been critical in my development.

What most excites you about your job right now?

Right now, the search and the unknown are both terrifying and exciting. As a second year businss school student, I feel my entire career is still ahead of me. I love learning about new industries and taking on challenging opportunities that stretch my skills and capabilities.

What would you like to have achieved by the last day of your career?

I want to lead an organization with at least 50 employees and $10 million in revenue. While I enjoy the investing and advisory aspects of financial services, at some point I want to commit myself to one business.
