1. I studied abroad across 10 countries:  Hong Kong, Thailand, Vietnam, South Africa, England, France, Brazil, Cuba, Hungary and Ireland
  2. I have an MBA; in undergrad I double majored in Marketing and Management: Strategy, Entrepreneurship and International Business.
  3. I am published in two academic journals:
    • Assessing Systemic Thinking in Undergraduates: An Exploratory Study Using a Total Enterprise Business Simulation. Developments in Business Simulation and Experiential Learning, Volume 14, 2014.
    • What Effect does Anti-Corruption Legislation have on Worldwide Corruption. Global Business & Economics Anthology, Volume I, March 2015.
  4. While in undergrad, I was elected President of the Marketing Association. I spent a year and a half compiling everything I had learned. I created the first ever, President’s Handbook. After my term, I opened the handbook for all student leaders to use. It is now the standard template for student organizations at Rutgers-Camden.
  5. I started my own blog, Expert of the Week. I interview experts within various industries to learn more about them, what they do, and most importantly - what advice they have for others.
    • I have interviewed CEOs and executive officers. These are listed as Executive Special Editions.
    • I highlight small businesses in Small Business Showcase. Local businesses have seen an uptick in sales after the interview is posted.
  6. I enjoy reading. I have a large collection of books. It’s mostly sci-fi; there’s nonfiction and fantasy thrown into the library. When I finish reading a book, I give it away to a friend.
  7. I love cats. My cat, Shadow, is the owner of the house. I’m just his two-legged servant.
  8. When people ask me, “What was my favorite country?” I respond with I don’t have a favorite. Each country has its own unique and wonderful experience.
  9. My bucket list is to visit Australia and Antarctica. I want to travel to all seven continents.
  10. When I am abroad, I will try everything offered to me. I joke saying I am on a “see food” diet. I see food, I eat it.
