Why should you join my trek?
“Memories that last a lifetime” is a cute cliché. “Memories that you think about every week for the rest of your life” is much more like it (sorry, not sorry, to your partners for making you think more about the Galapagos than about them). You’ll soon find out that business school is quite homogeneous–90% of us are type-A planners who love organizing thrilling activities and balanced trips. This group includes your humble leaders. But the bar for this trip is different… Over the course of a week, we’re going to validate every life decision you’ve ever made that led to you attending Ross. Buckle up.
About Me: Nourished on the fine water of the Pacific Northwest, I’ve grown (almost) as tall as the evergreen trees that give my birthplace its nickname. Though I’ve long since moved away to explore the world (43 states and counting!), my roots in the PNW still run deep. I love spending time exploring new cities, restaurants, and mountain ranges, whether fly-fishing, hiking, camping, skiing, or hanging out with MBA1s. I love to cook and throw dinner parties, so get ready for the friendships we make to last way longer than August. At Ross, I’m a co-president of the Entrepreneurship and Venture Capital club and Ross Outdoor Club, on the board for MTrek and the Ski & Snowboard club, involved in a variety of initiatives through ZLI and Sanger, and enjoy attending most of my classes. I’m terrible at making tradeoffs, so I usually just try to do everything (kind of like how we’re going snorkeling in **all** the best spots in the Galapagos)… you could say I’m an “and” kind of guy. Looking forward to meeting you where the sun shines, drinks flow, birds sing, and waves crash!
