I originally majored in music performance and have a deep interest in philosophy. After two years in community college I discovered that while music will always have a special place in my heart, my true passion lies in finance. Making this switch was the hardest and also best decision of my life. The lessons and skills I gathered in music and philosophy such as consistent and meaningful practice, the contribution each individual has to a larger group's success, and deliberately slow and critical analysis to name a few, have served me very well in my finance studies and career thus far. Currently I am completing a Master of Science in Finance degree at USC. Upon graduation in the Summer of 2019, I plan to start a career in Investment Banking. I am also working towards the CFA designation, and at some point I would like to go back to school for a JD/MBA or a PhD; but until then I will keep doing what I love: finance, music, cultivating meaningful relationships, and everything in between.
