For as long as I can remember, I have had a passion for education. I strive to grow my depth and breadth of knowledge on a daily basis. While there are many paths to pursuing an education, the university system has always been close to my heart. After a number of years of diligent work, I will be realizing a lifelong goal.

Starting this fall, I will be joining the Jindal School of Management at the University of Texas at Dallas as a Lecturer in the undergraduate finance program. I will be teaching a course on management consulting that I co-designed.

I've spent the last few years as a guest lecturer, contributing writer, mentor and conference speaker at a number of universities and organizations. Choosing to pursue my academic career at UT Dallas in addition to my professional career was surprisingly easy, though.

It is clear to see why.

  1. I earned my MBA from UT Dallas a few years ago and it has enriched my personal and professional life in more ways than I could have imagined.
  2. The JSOM is consistently ranked as one of the top business programs in the country. (#22 MBA program, #12 MS Finance, #8 quantitative methods and the list goes on)
  3. The students challenge me on a regular basis as I have been involved in the UTD Consulting Club, MBA Open House, Career Management Center Lecture Series and the Davidson Management Honors Mentor Program. I truly believe that UTD has some of the best and brightest students.
  4. I am privileged to work alongside the Director of the Professional Program in Finance to craft a course to prepare students for a career in management consulting. The PPF is making huge strides to prepare students for real world careers in banking and consulting.
  5. The faculty at UTD are world class. I owe much of my professional success to the teaching and practical training I received while in business school. I am excited to join the team as an adjunct lecturer.

As I prepare for the fall semester, I hope to embody the sentiment of one of my childhood role models - physicist and bongo player Dr. Richard Feynman - and encourage my students towards a lifestyle of learning.
