I enjoy doing research, learning, teaching, and helping people figure out what they want to do with their lives.


Iíve led, consulted for, and worked in big and small organizations spanning consumer goods, financial services, healthcare, technology, transportation, manufacturing, and government. As a Bain & Company Consultant, I worked on teams that helped turnaround a major U.S. airline, and that improved Latin American supply chain efficiency for large multi-nationals. I also co-founded and sold a dot-com called FleetXchange.com alongside Charles Kwon, a close friend I met during our MBA days at the Kellogg School of Management.


Iíve surfed in California, Costa Rica, France, Hawaii, Illinois, Indiana, Ireland, Mexico, Michigan, New York and Wisconsin. Iíve also taught Liberation Theology in India.


For pure fun, I enjoy participating in any kind of water sport, riding my bike, acting like I can play a guitar, writing film reviews for Ethix.org, and of course hanging out with my family and seeing my kids laugh hysterically.
