Brief Biographical Sketch:

I study mechanical engineering most of the time. But on Tuesday nights I am a radio DJ at WMBR, MIT's radio station. At WMBR I host the show Tender Hooligans - playing mostly 80's alternative rock - and manage many of the community outreach programs, such as Spark and Splash.
