I chase passions.
At age 14, I followed my curiosity 1,200 miles from home to foster an obsession with learning around Phillips Exeter Academy’s Harkness tables. Four years later I wandered west to Stanford University where I began to develop my interests in investing, sustainability, tech and all things design. In my free time I studied Economics (B.A. ’11) and Civil & Environmental Engineering (M.S. ’12). Oh, and of course I also shot a few hoops.
Naturally, I now travel the world playing professional basketball. The sport is my platform for exploring the world and connecting with incredible individuals, brands and organizations across the globe. I have played in the NBA Development League with the Idaho Stampede (’12-’13) and Israel’s Winner League with Hapoel Tel Aviv BC (’13-’14). The 2014-2015 campaign marks my third season of pro ball and second season overseas. I currently play forward for Aquila Basket Trento in Italy’s Serie A.
