New Beginnings

Autumn chased me down to Charlottesville.
The first crisp days following me as I headed south,
Singing low rumbling harmonies
And laughing right out loud...

Two months ago, I packed up my life and prepared to start a new one at Darden. Over the next two years, I will use this space to chronicle my discoveries, challenges, and triumphs as I navigate the business school waters.

A little about me: I was born and raised in Fairfax, Virginia, a suburb of Washington, DC just two hours north of Charlottesville. My college days were spent at UNC Chapel Hill, home of the Tar Heels, where I studied journalism and men's basketball. Following graduation, I was lucky enough to secure a position with National Geographic magazine in Washington, DC, where I worked as a visual journalist (more on that later) for five years prior to Darden. I had some amazing experiences with NG, but ultimately decided to change course and pursue an MBA.

With two months under my belt, I've already survived one round of exams, but the next round is coming soon, so this will have to be short for now. More to come soon!
