Senior Systems Analyst, CEI, Inc

Favorite class at VSB and why?

Information Systems, Economics, and Stock Portfolio Management classes. Dr. J.J. Clarke's Finance classes were memorable. For me, the intersection of these fields continues to be relevant and fascinating.

Most important thing you learned?

An undergraduate education is like a foundation that must continually be built upon and refined throughout a career. It is important to enjoy your work because doing good work is essential to a having a good life. Studying business at Villanova was both a joy and a privilege.

Favorite Villanova memory?

Rehearsals and concert tours all over the U.S. Eastern Seaboard and Europe, where my wife and I met and fell in love while performing music with the Villanova Singers and the Villanova Spires. Football weekend tailgates with friends, family and alumni. Playing intramural basketball at Jake Nevin fieldhouse with the "Creeeameee Burrrrgers", a team of my best friends named after a favorite ice cream sandwich dessert that was served at "The Pit."
