Study Abroad Program, Junior Year, University of Cape Town, South Africa, 2000
MBA from Columbia University, 2010 (while working full time)
I grew up in the suburbs of Philadelphia. I played enough junior golf to see some courses and that got me interested in drawing different types of holes. My family joined Gulph Mills Golf Club when I was 11 and becoming obsessed with the game. Admittedly, I became a bit spoiled-seeing many wonderful golf courses in my youth. I kept my game sharp and played for part of college before moving to New York in June 2001 to join Wall Street. There were quite a few problems with my timing, but I I also got very lucky: I got married, had a kid, and played a lot of golf in the New York area. Once again my passion for golf architecture surfaced, and after 17 years in finance, I moved into this job. My colleagues are great people and creative in a way that inspires. I am excited by what we are working on...
