A California native, I study computer science at MIT01 and compete as a professional figure skater02. I love to travel the world03.

01 Engineer

I'm a fourth-year student studying computer science and engineering at MIT, Class of 2019, with a concentration in theater arts and a graduate of the MIT Media Lab MAS First-Year program.

Spring 2018, I spent the semester abroad revising informatik and German at ETH Zürich for the inaugural MIT EECS x ETH exchange program.

I specialize in the intersection of design and engineering, envisioning and developing the next-generation of user interactions, interfaces, and experiences.

I've worked with a number of startups, MIT Media Lab, Priceline.com, Credit Suisse, and Microsoft in various design and engineering capacities.

Outside of coursework, I blog for MIT Admissions, work with the MIT Consulting Group, and serve as an Associate Advisor for the Department of EECS. I was the previous Chapter President and Vice President of Beta Theta Pi. Last winter, I taught computer science at a high school in Germany through MIT Global Teaching Labs.

02 Athlete

Ever since I took my first steps on the ice at the age of 6, I've picked up two US junior men's silver medals and two consecutive US Collegiate Championship titles.

I've competed on Team USA, traveling throughout the world on the Junior Grand Prix Circuit and 2015 US World Junior Team.

Summer 2015, I moved to Boston to begin first year at MIT and train with my coaches, Mark Mitchell and Peter Johansson, under Mitchell Johansson Method. I represent the Skating Club of Boston.

Aside from competing, I love to skate in shows and exhibitions, and have performed for Harvard's An Evening with Champions in support of the Jimmy Fund and Dana-Farber Cancer Institute, Skating Club at Dartmouth and Children's Hospital, and the Rockefeller Center in NYC.

I also serve on the US Figure Skating Singles Committee.

03 Globetrotter

For my studies, training, and internships, I've had the opportunity to explore the nation and world. I've been fortunate enough to tour over 26 countries and counting — from Estonia to Japan, to Hong Kong and Switzerland.

I love to travel, take photos, and blog and vlog about my adventures for MIT Admissions.

I've been featured in a world-wide ad campaign, been celebrated with my own day, met ambassadors, diplomats, and corporate leaders, organized a career fair, voted and debated legislation at a national convention as a presidential delegate, had brunch with a Nobel Laureate, worked in a law firm, led tours of my department and a freshmen pre-orientation program, and taught computer science at a high school in Germany.
