What led you to a career in the deal-making industry?
I always thought the notion of being a trust advisor was really cool - being a guy that people turn to for unbiased, conflicted and measured advice. I wanted a career that would keep me engaged and always on my toes, to make sure I never stop learning or get complacent.
Memorable deal I worked on... why?
Clearon sellside - absolute sprint start to finish (~6 months) with some twists and turns along the way (e.g. canceled flight ahead of MP resulted in 12 hour drive through the night to West Virginia from NYC).
Most enjoy about my career...
I like that I never stop learning - learning about new clients, new industries, and their place in the broader economy and our way of life.
