What I Love About Writing

I love writing because it is a medium through which we can preserve, express, and transmit our emotions and ideas with others.

Research

This year I’m studying the accuracy of investment buy-side and sell-side analyst forecasts for firms, specifically looking at forecasts by sector, with the expectation that biased sectors such as technology will have a higher error rate than less efficiently priced sectors. 

How I Stay Involved

In terms of involvement, I try to maintain a well-balanced and active involvement in our campus community.  I love to pursue my passions, and that reflects the organizations with which I am involved.  In addition to being a Writing Fellow, I am a leader of the Men’s Wrestling Team, the Vice President of the Student Body, a representative in the Student Athletic Advisory Committee, a member of the Finance Scholars Program, and a tutor for economics and accounting.

An Unusual Fact About Me

I possess a deep and unshakeable love for milkshakes despite being devastatingly lactose intolerant.
