About me

image

I like the challenge of bringing together ideas from different places and turning them into something tangible. That could be a new recipe, an outdoor adventure, or a software application. Since I was a kid, I've always loved the process of creating a vision, getting others involved, and making things happen. At Northeastern, I've been fortunate to have an environment in which I can explore new projects with other passionate people.

I am inspired by people who love to learn and are innovative and mindful in how they live their life.
