Professional Profile

I manage Avalon's private equity portfolio, conduct public equity research, and manage multiple special investment projects. I travel regularly and get to meet and work with some of the top firms and individuals in the investment industry.  

How Did Beacom Prepare Me For Success?

You get out of every class what you put  into it.  I am continually reminded of the high quality of education I received while at USD.   

Other Thoughts?

Professors truly make Beacom an excellent experience.  They are approachable, personable, ready to support students, and want to see them succeed. I had a finance professor who was particularly instrumental in my education and in shaping my career pursuits. My involvement in the student-managed investment group, Coyote Capital Management (CCM), was what inspired me to pursue my current career and gave me the experience I needed to get a fantastic job even before I graduated with my MBA.

Advice to Prospective Students Considering Beacom? 

Get involved on campus and in student groups right away. That is the experience that will truly set you apart and provide the most rewarding experiences. Also, be serious about your studies from the beginning—it's a lot easier to maintain good grades than to play catch-up later.
