Career plans: I'd like to work in a consulting firm, hopefully in the area of development and finance.

Why did you choose Chicago Booth? Other than the school's prestige, amazing faculty, and flexible program, Booth offered me an all-new experience with an amazing class of top-level professionals. I visited Chicago last summer and I knew I wanted to come and live here.

Use three adjectives to describe your experience at Chicago Booth: Exciting, enriching, and fun.

What do you consider a "must visit" place or "must do" activity in Chicago? I think everyone must go to a concert at Navy Pier, grab a drink, and look at the city at night. Also, if you get a chance, go to the opera or a jazz/blues concert.

Ask me about...: Living in Latin America, recruiting for investment banking, consulting, or entrepreneurship.
