Meet the people who are building Q4Colleges.


gravatarDavid Cha – Editor

David Cha dreams big and gets excited about numbers like 1.618. He graduated from SUNY Binghamton with a BA in Political Science and thought a lot about becoming a lawyer. So he didn’t. Instead he spends his day working for Brooke Allen as an editor, budding programmer and hopes to build awesome and beautiful things. He likes to nerd out about best practices, challenging the status quo, and going to live concerts in his native town of New York City. He considers himself incredibly lucky to have been born during this era. He hopes that anyone visiting Q4C will be inspired to find something they love and DO IT.

You can reach him at Write to him and tell him what you’re up to, or if you think he can help you in any way possible. His personal site is coming in 2013.

Adrienne Rodney – Previous Editor

Adrienne Rodney has a master’s degree in Journalism from Boston University. When she’s not working on the Web site No Shortage of Work she is assisting a group of quantitative traders. Adrienne is a big proponent of higher education and hopes to see more people realize their dreams of obtaining a college degree. However, she also hopes they do their homework beforehand to understand the benefits – and the ever-growing costs – of attending university. She’s optimistic that Q4Colleges will guide prospective students (and their parents) in the right direction. You can reach her at:

Brooke Allen – Co-Founder

By day, Brooke heads a quantitative trading desk he founded in 1995 for a securities firm.  He has a BA in Mathematics from Rutgers University and an MBA in Finance from New York University. He is a huge fan of education: higher, lower, and otherwise.

Brooke enjoyed accompanying his sons on college tours more than his sons enjoyed his company because he’d often ask embarrassing questions like, “What sorts of students discover after they get here that this is not the place for them?” He usually got answers such as, “The kind of student who doesn’t like a beautiful campus with small classes and a dedicated faculty.” He assumed he was getting these kinds of answers because he was not asking high up enough in the organization. Hence,
