About me: Abe graduated from both Kansas State University and the University of Kansas with degrees in engineering. He then pursued a career in civil engineering. After three and a half years working as a consulting engineer in the private sector, he switched to working for the US Army on civilian infrastructure, mostly focused on flood prevention and sustainability. Here, he led multidisciplinary project teams and executed work throughout the American South East. He also undertook pro bono work for Engineers Without Borders in Guatemala.
Abe decided to pursue an MBA to shift his focus to business and with the goal of pursuing a career in strategy consulting. He chose LBS because of its unmatched diversity and international focus, as well as the amazing opportunities for personal and professional growth in London. At LBS, Abe is involved with Out in Business and helps to plan EurOut, the largest LGBTQ+ business school conference in Europe.
