I'm a member at South Park Commons , a community of technologists in San Francisco working on new ideas.
I write a weekly newsletter called Launchpad , that helps students learn more about the hiring process and connect with mission-driven startups in the Bay Area and beyond.
I organize Grub With Friends , a summer dinner series for interns in the tech industry.
I helped start Neighborly 's Networks division, launching projects across the US to help rural and underserved communities attain open, free community broadband.
I was the first hire (product strategist/design lead) at TrustedFor (YC S19), a professional social networking app.
I founded a startup matching students with jobs called SolverIQ while I was an undergraduate student.
I worked as a Fellow at Rice University's Liu Idea Lab helping academics transfer research to new ventures.
I helped enable project-based learning adoption in thousands of classrooms across the US with the Korda Institute for Teaching .
Once upon a time, I grew up in Cleveland, Ohio, and learned about tech through the generosity of my hometown's startup community. I'm in San Francisco now, but I'm still working on ventures that affect my friends back home: increasing economic opportunity, closing the digital divide, and improving access to quality education.

Feel free to reach me.
