About Me

I'm out in the world trying to find out where I can make the biggest positive impact for those around me. Medium-term goals include building a space elevator and maintaining a vegetable garden. I’m currently an MBA candidate at the Stanford Graduate School of Business. Previously, I was a management consultant at Oliver Wyman in New York working on technology and telecom topics; before that, I attended Yale University (Go TC!). I live in Palo Alto and miss NYC!

For a more academic exploration of my thoughts about the intersection of politics and technology, browse my undergraduate thesis, “Hijacked Dreams: Technological Determinism and the Idea of Progress.” I promise you’ll learn something new!

Quick facts: I love the outdoors, animals, learning, art, reading, gadgets, civil liberties… I try to learn important life lessons from my golden retrievers, Arlo and Cozmo, and my cat, Mittens. Autumn is my favorite season, because I love the New England foliage and the pleasant weather.
