About Myself

I’m a student, entrepreneur, engineer, and everything in between. I enjoy broadening my horizons by pursuing topics ranging from social work in inner-city communities to reading the latest developments in econometrics. I’m looking to combine my desire to improve the world with a business-focused mindset through social entrepreneurship.

Some of my favorite pastimes is reading novels (currently reading Banker to the Poor by Muhammad Yunus) and biking (find me pedaling away on the streets of 620 and Anderson Mill).
