Brief Biographical Sketch:

I am a senior in the Mechanical Engineering department at MIT, with aspirations of improving the world. I was raised in Durham, North Carolina and I enjoy building things, learning about entrepreneurship in Boston's entrepreneurial ecosystem, biking, and playing my trombone. In the short term, I plan to attend graduate school to study design and product development. Down the road, I plan to start a company and give entrepreneurship a shot. If things don't work out there, I will find a job at a product design firm and live like a normal person, sleeping 8 hours every day.
