Finance & risk manager
I was born in Oklahoma City, but my Texan parents got us back home to Texas as soon as possible. I grew up in Dallas-Fort Worth and the surrounding suburbs. I chose to stay close to home and earned a bachelors degree from the University of Texas at Dallas.
I spent 4 years working for a financial services firm throughout college and found I had a passion for the finance industry. I was recruited to Goldman Sachs after graduation and spent nearly 4 years there working to build and grow the Marcus branded consumer products as well as partners on co-branded credit cards. I had the opportunity to help build processes and procedures and wear many hats on a startup project within a 150 year old financial juggernaut.
My time spent at Goldman helped to hone my analytical skills and introduced me to the world of Business Strategy and Risk Management. This is where I found a new career passion. Working with stakeholders across all areas of the business to limit risk exposure. I am excited to help Embark during a time of hyper growth by working to develop ways to provide sustainable long term growth.
I thrive off of personal relationships. When I’m not working you’ll find me with my wife, Shea, and our daughter, Adelaide, or with friends and family enjoying quality time and thoughtful conversation. My faith in Jesus Christ helps to shape who I am and how I act, and I hope that others can see that reflected in their interactions with me.
