What is your educational background?

"After putting myself through college for multiple majors, I volunteered to coordinate the freshman political campaign of a brilliant attorney. Nearly immediately, she recommended I attend her alma mater, The University of Maryland School of Law. I applied, received a full scholarship, and never looked back."

What is your background in your field?

"I've been entrepreneurial all of my life but realized the limitations of just being my own boss while in law school. I began hiring trusted leaders in the legal industry, people far more informed than I, and grew the company to $1.5 billion in revenue in five years with their help."

How has your education fueled your success?

"My education was very broad and deep in multiple subjects, allowing me the insights necessary to make connections far beyond the surface. Management is rarely a surface deep endeavor, and I learned to embrace the complexity of challenges to solve them."

What advice would you give someone just starting out in your field?

"Whether in law or technology, take calculated risks towards becoming a linchpin in your field. Put yourself out there, be it volunteer or career. And don't settle. A bad job is like a diet: a miserable waste of time."
