About Me

When people ask what my goal is in life, I tell them it's to make things more efficient. Whether that's through hacking a scraper to automate something reptitive or changing how a system works through design choices or entrepreneurship, I'm always looking to make the world better.

Some of my favorite things to do are swing dance, snowboard, and travel
