Brief Biographical Sketch:

I'm the first student at Pitzer College to major in Data Science. I believe that advances in artificial intelligence are driving the future, but there is a lot more to think about than just automation and machine learning. I trust the power of human-centered design and the impact of the humanities to drive better decision-making processes in everything in our world. I am also an advocate for STEM education while running a STEM education-based startup called STEMCube. Other than these academic and noble pursuits, I am quite often seen playing video games, watching binge-worthy television shows at home and living it up on the weekends.
