Drew currently serves as the CFO & Co-Founder of BLK Capital Management, an asset management fund and training program that gives African American students who are interested in Finance the network, skills, and tools to becoming a leader in the sector. BLK has currently helped over 150 students gain internship opportunities at leading financial institutions, and continues to expand this number as the organization grows. Drew, himself, has been acting as as Summer Analyst in the TMT Investment Banking Division at Bank of America.

Whatever Drew’s future holds, he will never forego his commitment to Service and to his community, because he is a staunch believer that “I am my brother’s keeper.”
