One Sentence About Me  

Success takes you where character cannot sustain you - always be genuine and don't lose your inner self.

Who I Am  

A Little About Me

I was born and raised in Alameda, California right in the Bay Area where I continue my 3rd year in college at Santa Clara University as a Finance major. I wanted to pursue a role in management consulting and would love to gain experience at startups. I previously finished studying abroad in China in Fall 2019 where I interned at a Kenyan/Chinese startup, and recently finished interning at a private equity search fund. I hope to find an intersection between strategy, finance, and technology in my career. In my spare time, I research and learn about classic cars, dream about the next winter skiing season, and try to get involved in new ideas!
