Jeff served as a White House Fellow in the Clinton Administration working on policies to combat climate change.

He holds a master's degree from Oxford as a Marshall Scholar, and a bachelor's degree from Harvard.
Jeff attributes his success in part to his Harbor Day School education cultivating his curiosity and a love of foreign language, and for teaching him grit. At HDS, he learned that in order to succeed, you have to exceed expectations.
