Palm Beach, Florida

Educational Background

BS Neuroscience, MS Neuroscience

What is a fun fact about you?

I produce music and I’m signed to a few record labels.

Tell us about your work experience. What you are most proud of?

I have experience working in a family private equity office and angel investing in the cannabis and biopharmaceutical sectors. Here, I verified the scientific validity of investments in the space, and should my principal investors move forward with an investment, I was the main vein of communication between the investors and investees.

Why are you pursuing your MBA?

I never had to deal with many of the numbers in the transactions I oversaw. I was the science and communications liaison. The transactions I did have eyes on were not exactly done by the book due to the nascent stage of the cannabis industry and its regulatory environment.

What attracted you to Freeman? 

Tulane provided me with an excellent undergrad and graduate education once, and I’m confident it will again.

Where do you hope to be in five years?

Psychedelic venture capital, biopharmaceutical hedge fund, but in the psychedelic space is the primary target.

What do you like to do in your spare time/hobbies?

Meditation, make music, exercise and travel.
