Greetings and welcome to my website. I am a fifth-year Doctoral Candidate in Finance at Florida State University. My research interests include corporate finance, alternative assets, and labor finance. I possess an affinity for art, wine, and whiskey that I incorporate into my research whenever possible.

Upon graduation, I attended Naval Officer Candidate School in Newport, RI. I reported to Naval Air Station Pensacola for Flight School as a Naval Flight Officer in-training. My designated aircraft was the P-3C Orion.

After leaving the Navy, I worked as a Controller for a non-profit and an internal auditor for at TIAA Bank in Jacksonville, FL. I completed my MBA at the University of North Florida.
