Zack's Story

The MBA application process is fraught with stress and unknowns. Between the GMAT or GRE, communicating your story in an authentic way, articulating your desires for the future, and presenting yourself in a polished and professional manner, there’s a ton of details to work through to secure a coveted spot at a top MBA program.

I learned this firsthand when I went through the process. Now I’d like to take away some of that stress and help you put your best foot forward. I completed my MBA at Harvard Business School and graduated “With Distinction” (top 10% of the class). My clients have gone on to be accepted at HBS, UPenn Wharton, Stanford GSB, MIT Sloan, UChicago Booth, UVA Darden, Berkeley Haas, and other prestigious programs. 

My approach is simple. During our live meetings, we’ll find your “golden thread.” The golden thread is the connection between what you’ve done in the past, what you want to do in the future, and why your school of choice is the perfect place for you to connect those dots.

I bring years of experience as a management consultant for McKinsey & Company, a military veteran, a Private Equity operator, and a leader in startups. I’ve advised MBA applicants and business leaders alike, and always bring authenticity, honesty, empathy, and active listening to my relationships. I look forward to speaking with you!​
