One Sentence About Me  

I'm always asking "why"-- always wondering about the under-workings of things we encounter on a daily basis.

Who I Am  

A Little About Me

I'm from the Bay Area and major in Business Administration with a minor in Applied Analytics at USC. I'm intrigued by the application of numbers and number storytelling from a business perspective which has led me to embark on the path to a career in finance. A few of my interests outside of school are basketball (Go Lakers!) and entrepreneurship. I recently started a company with a few friends and am always looking for new ways to learn.

Interesting Factoid

I'm an ex-sneakerhead
