2011-2014

Bel Air Investment Advisors - Analyst

  • Investment Management
  • Financial Modeling
  • Portfolio Analysis
  • Excel/Bloomberg/Morningstar
  • Los Angeles, USA

Bel Air works with clients who have $20+ million to invest. I was one of two Analysts at the firm, which meant I created all the portfolio analysis, business development, and financial modeling projects for over $2 billion in assets. I played with lots of numbers, worked alongside the smartest people I've ever met, and learned how to handle an insane amount of pressure.

Summer 2011

Egmont Royal Institute - Research Assistant

  • Think Tank
  • European Union
  • Economic/Security Policy
  • Brussels, BE

Egmont Royal Institute is a European Union policy think tank based in Brussels. Summer 2011 was the height of the Arab Spring, and it was my job to create briefs that detailed all major international responses to events happening in North Africa. I worked in an environment where 3 languages were spoken, read about 5 newspapers a day, and learned that working through your lunch break isn't as expected in Belgium as it is in America.

Spring 2011

People In Need - Intern

  • NGO
  • Education Reform
  • Policy Research
  • Prague, CZ

I helped this education reform organization compile research on the economic impact of early childhood education programs in various western countries. It was my first experience working internationally, and my first time seeing the inner workings of an NGO.

2008-2012

University of Southern California

  • B.A. International Relations
  • B.A. Global Business

The best four years of my life.
