I look forward to meeting you and starting our experience together at Babson. Since I am fairly certain you know nothing about me here is a little background. I grew up in the suburbs of Chicago. From a young age I have had an interest in investing that has intensified throughout my life. But what really defined my youth was sports. For as long as I can remember I have been playing soccer, skiing and golfing. Up until high school, I played for the Chicago Kickers Soccer Club. Being a top ten team in the country I had many great experiences traveling and playing all over the country. Although not nearly as competitive in golf, I have been playing since a young age and have had the pleasure of competing in several tournaments.

Each of these was very important to me; however, it was my dedication to skiing that has been most important throughout my life. Since the early age of three, when my dad pushed me down a hill on skis for the first time, skiing has grown to be a bigger and bigger part of my life to date. This passion for skiing eventually led to my decision to pursue a ski academy halfway across the country in rural Vermont at Green Mountain Valley School (GMVS). GMVS has allowed me to continue my pursuit of both soccer and skiing, while allowing me to develop new passions as well, such as my involvement with the sound production for the theatrical performances.

My ever-growing interest in investing culminated this past summer in an Internship opportunity with Balyasny Asset Management (BAM). BAM is a multi strategy international hedge fund that currently manages several billion dollars in assets. This experience has solidified my dreams of one day opening and running my own hedge fund.

Looking to the future, I can assure you I will be an easy person to live with. Over my years at boarding school I have had the opportunity to live with four different people in various rooming situations ranging from doubles to quads. Many people would describe me as being highly opinionated and strong willed, but would just as quickly agree that I have discovered that it is necessary to be easy going to make living situations work. Each of these students that I have lived with have had very different personalities, schedules, work habits, and sense of hygiene; however, not once did I encounter major issues with any of them, and in fact each of them has become a close friend of mine after the experience.

I look forward to the unique and innovative approach Babson takes to business school, and am eager to get as much out of the program as I can before going off into the business world. Seeing as investing is such a passion of mine I hope to become heavily involved in the investment clubs Babson offers. Drawing upon my experiences throughout my life, I look forward to running my first major business endeavor with my fellow classmates in the upcoming year and I hope to gain the confidence of my peers so that I might be put in a position of leadership.

Aside from the obvious benefits associated with Babson and its successful approach to business, I am looking forward to the opportunity to continue my current interests outside of school, first and foremost through the Babson Ski Team but also potentially the soccer team or golf team as well as other experiences such as studying abroad and various clubs and organizations that find to be of interest.

I have always enjoyed the Boston area and cannot wait to experience the full breadth of what the city and Babson have to offer. If you get the chance, I would love to hear about who you are and what you hope to get out of your experience at Babson.

Also we need to get the whole TV, refrigerator, who’s bringing what situation figured out, so please give me a call or write back.
