Recent Perspectives

Returning to work and a trip to Disney

– Hey everyone, it has been a whirlwind since I returned from maternity leave in July. The kiddos are almost a year old, and I can't even believe it. It has been a fun return to work, including bringing the twins with me!

Welcoming our twins, Clara and Jack

– Last month, Emily and I became the parents of our twin children, Clara and Jack. We have always wanted children, and been trying on and off for the past year.

Same clients, different functional area

– While I've spent most of my career in consumer goods, I usually work on revenue growth projects. I was intrigued by the possibility of approaching the same clients from a different functional area.

Making tradeoffs for a dream project

– I'm at a turning point in my McKinsey career. When I started at the firm, I was truly ambivalent—never indifferent—about becoming a partner.

Achieving my "triple crown" bucket list dream

– Travel is definitely one of the most discussed aspects of consulting life—I probably get the most questions about travel from candidates, though I even get them from colleagues.

Getting married to Emily

– Greetings from Hotlanta! The city does live up to its name; we've been regularly experiencing weather in the 90s, which is just roasting to me.

The Polar Vortex and working in an OTB parlor

– Greetings from Washington, DC! It's been a whirlwind since I last wrote. I'm getting married in June to my fiancee Emily, who just joined McKinsey!
