Side Projects

I take a hands on approach to new problems and love to explore new ideas and product spaces in my free time. In the past, I've worked closely with college founders and entrepreneurs within the Forbes network to support at the early product stage. All have gone on to raise venture, and beyond!

My personal interests in fashion, history, and art give me drive. From managing 70+ creatives at the largest Stanford print and digital magazine, coding generative art, or recreating da Vinciโ€™s Lion... I love working with throughtful, passionate teams on any and all exciting new projects.

About Me

Iโ€™m an upcoming grad @ Stanford where I study a mix of product design, digital communications, engineering, and data science.

Design's superpower is empowering others to create their own imaginative spaces, intimate communities, and personal stories. This has molded my interests in a specific set of product spaces: consumer social, personal wellness, and commerce technologies. Nothing gets me more excited than projects working towards this future!
