Overview

I recently graduated magna cum laude from the University of Rochester with a BS in Mechanical Engineering and a BA with research honors in History. I also spent a fifth tuition-free fellowship year studying ethnomusicology and anthropology.

Outside of academics, I'm an active vocal musician focusing on contemporary a cappella. As the director and manager of my group, I organized concert tours across the country, produced two studio albums, and performed alongside professional musicians from around the world.
