What’s the most interesting thing about you that we wouldn’t learn from your resume alone?
I am an armchair physicist. Quantum physics, in particular, fascinates me and I try to keep up with the latest discoveries.
How do you curate your intellectual diet? What blogs, publications, etc. do you ready daily?
I read a lot. I am a news junkie. I use news aggregators and social media (think Google news, LinkedIn, Facebook, Flipboard, Pocket) as my primary information gatekeepers. This approach has its advantages (leverages the power of the crowd) as well as disadvantages (beware of context bubbles.) I remain partial to The Economist.
Name something you’ve gained from your membership in the Adam Smith Society that you feel like you could not have gotten elsewhere in your MBA program.
Being a member of the Adam Smith Society has been a fantastic experience. It is a great platform to interact and network with likeminded free market thinkers. The National Meeting is an experience not to be missed.
