“I've always been a huge science fiction and technology nerd. Whether it was watching Steve Jobs unveiled the original iPhone or playing with Microsoft's Hololens, I've always loved thinking about how emerging technologies can change our day to day lives. Now, I'm lucky enough to be a part of that ecosystem, building the future today.”

My journey started in my hometown of Denver, Colorado. I was a shy kid with big dreams of playing basketball and doing good in the world. I eventually found myself at Harvard studying economics and CS, where I won two ivy-league championships with the basketball team, and joined an education company where I launched a remote tutoring campaign in Ghana. I've also played with Thailand's national basketball team, and joined Activant's investment team in 2020.
