Jamie attended King’s College in Auckland, New Zealand, from which he graduated with eight A* and two A’s, including a Top In The World for A2 English Literature, Top In The World for IGCSE English Language and multiple Top In The Country awards.
After discovering overseas university pathways, Jamie applied for 25 of the top universities around the world and was the first New Zealander to be accepted into all of them. He was accepted into elite universities such as Harvard, Cambridge, Yale, Princeton, Stanford, University of Pennsylvania’s Huntsman Program, and Columbia.
Jamie ultimately chose Harvard and graduated Magna Cum Laude with a degree in Applied Mathematics & Economics as well as a Masters in Applied Math two years ahead of schedule, while also working as the youngest analyst at Tiger Management at the age of 20.
It was Jamie’s success in securing offers to competitive universities that inspired him to co-found Crimson Education and serve as CEO since 2013.
After graduating from Harvard, Jamie became one of the youngest students ever accepted to Stanford Graduate School of Business, where he completed an MBA and Masters in Education. In 2017, he spoke at the UN about eradicating poverty and was listed in Forbes Asia 30 Under 30. In 2018, Jamie earned a coveted Rhodes Scholarship and is pursuing a Doctor of Philosophy in Public Policy at the University of Oxford.
