My name is Wade B. I hail from Georgia where I was a scholar athlete, earning varsity letters in baseball, basketball, and football. I then went to play football at Carnegie Mellon to study finance. After a season of football, I switched to baseball to carry out my career. During the summer between my freshman and sophomore year, I was chosen to represent Carnegie Mellon at an International Business School (WHU) in Vallendar, Germany for a month long course. I was subsequently asked to return and study for a semester the following spring.
Upon returning to Carnegie Mellon, I finished a very successful baseball career and I was inducted into the CMU Baseball Hall of Fame in 2013. In addition to the sporting fields, I was able to graduate from Carnegie Mellon in 3.5 years (Dec 2012) and begun work as a Corporate Finance Analyst on the Energy Team for PNC Bank, where I underwrote a portfolio consisting of $1.4 Billion in direct hard exposure. I then decided to take on a business development job in the Bay Area.
In High School and College, I was always good at math having scored near perfect on the SAT and ACT in math, as well as scoring a 5 on the AP Calculus Exam. I enjoy teaching and helping kids that are eager to learn, and I have great experience in managing expectations in addition to overwhelming projects, as a direct result of my athletic experiences.
At CMU, I minored in history and have travelled extensively throughout Europe having been there 13 times. Therefore, I enjoy writing historical papers in addition to learning about history. I love to teach, and the extra money is definitely a plus, so I am excited about the opportunity to spread my knowledge.
I am a student of the game and have been playing for 20 years. My 2008 Brookwood High School Baseball Team was ranked 1st in the country in the USA Today, and finished the season 3rd in the country after winning the GA AAAAA State Championship. I was a shortstop on this team, and the following season, I batted leadoff and played shortstop on a team that featured 4 eventual professionals. I myself declined offers to play professionally to focus on academia and the eventual business world. I also am well versed in pitching and hitting mechanics as I batted a career .462 at Carnegie Mellon and was inducted into the Hall of Fame on the first ballot out of school.
