Football, Wrestling, Track & Field
Curt was a two-time high school state wrestling qualifier and a 1988 state wrestling champion. He was a member of the 1987 and 1988 state champion teams and a Junior National Champion for USA Wrestling. He was also a member of a state runner-up football team and named second team all-state. His senior year he was recognized as an Aquinas Key Excellence Medal recipient. 

He went on to wrestle at the University of Notre Dame where he was an NCAA division wrestling tournament qualifier. He earned a bachelor’s degree from the University of Notre Dame and an MBA from Northwestern University’s Kellogg School of Management. Throughout his career he has worked in the investment management industry, primarily in equity trading, for some of the largest asset managers in Chicago, New York and Hong Kong. 

What he remembers most about his time at Dowling Catholic is the culture of excellence and the high expectations set by his coaches, teachers and teammates. He also learned the value of putting in the hard work and learned more from defeats than the victories.
