Education
Juris Doctor

Founded by Thomas Jefferson in 1819, the University of Virginia School of Law is a world-renowned training ground for distinguished lawyers and public servants. Consistently ranked among the top law schools in the nation, Virginia has educated generations of lawyers, instilling in them a commitment to leadership, integrity and community service. Virginia is justly famous for its collegial environment that bonds students and faculty, and student satisfaction is consistently cited as among the highest in American law schools. At Virginia, law students share their experiences in a cooperative spirit, both in and out of the classroom, and build a network that lasts well beyond their three years here. With more than 20,000 students and a faculty of more than 2,100, the University of Virginia has been ranked first or second among the nation's public universities since 1984. The University's diverse intellectual life is open to law students: Up to 12 credits from other departments may be counted toward the J.D. degree.

MA in Foreign Affairs

The University of Virginia (often abbreviated as UVA, UVa, or Virginia) is a public research university in Charlottesville, Virginia, United States. It was conceived and designed by U.S. President Thomas Jefferson, and established in 1819. UVA's initial Board of Visitors included former Presidents of the United States Thomas Jefferson, James Madison, and James Monroe. Monroe owned the initial site of the University, which was mostly farmland. His law office and farmhouse are now the site of Brown College at Monroe Hill, a residential college at UVA. UVA is one of the eight original Public Ivy universities, and it is the only university campus in the United States that is designated a World Heritage Site by UNESCO. In the 2013 edition of U.S. News and World Report's National University Rankings, the school was listed as America's 2nd best public university; tied with UCLA and surpassed only by UC Berkeley.

Career History
Co-Founder
2005 - Current

Makena Capital Management manages funds based on an endowment-model investment approach that seeks to achieve long-term capital appreciation with relatively low investment volatility and risk. The firm seeks to generate long-term, risk-adjusted returns and capital appreciation by investing in investment funds, investment partnerships, securities, and discretionary accounts across a broad range of marketable and alternative asset classes. Makena implements this strategy primarily by selecting and investing in investment funds, separately-managed accounts and other vehicles managed by third-party investment managers. The funds also directly purchase certain public securities. The funds are characterized by broad diversification across asset classes, strategies, geographies, and currencies. This investment approach incorporates the full range of asset classes, including private equity, real estate, natural resources, absolute return, tactical/hedged equity, global public equity, fixed income and cash. Investments may include publicly traded securities, securities traded over-the-counter, swaps, investment contracts, options, derivatives, debt instruments, futures, commodities, currencies, real estate, fixed income securities and private or restricted securities.

Managing Director
2005 - 2005

Stanford Management Co. manages investments in public equities, real estate, private equity, natural resources, absolute return strategies and fixed-income. The majority of Stanford University's assets are invested in the Merged Pool (MP), a diversified portfolio of actively managed financial and real estate assets. The MP portfolio's investment philosophy is based on modern portfolio theory and strategic asset allocation. The portfolio seeks to maximize long-term returns, create consistent annual payouts to the University's operating budget and preserve purchasing power for future generations of Stanford University's faculty and students. Stanford Management Co. actively manages the MP, selecting third-party managers to deploy the MPs capital. They seek to place capital with a diversified set of managers across geographies and investment strategies. Stanford Management Co. also seeks to add value through effective risk management, tactical portfolio rebalancing and opportunistic investment tilts.
