Who I Am  

A Little About Me

One of the most common compliments I get from employers, teachers, and friends is that I’m exceptionally well-rounded. For example, while I’m adept in analytical and quantitative aspects, I also have a deep-rooted creative side and an ability to communicate effectively with all types of people. I also have a knack for customer service, and by combining these qualities together I am able to bring ideas to the table that are effective at touching all key aspects of a business that matter.

Interesting Factoid

I'm a multi-instrumentalist and love creating/writing new songs

Bucket List  

Countries I want to Visit

I want to explore the world. I first want to visit the countries of my ancestors, Hungary and Scotland. I also want to go to Croatia, Switzerland, Greece, Japan, New Zealand, Indonesia, Thailand, India, China, Peru, Denmark, Germany, and many others.

Professional Dreams

I'm new to the professional world, and I'm interested in a LOT of things. Right now I'm focused on product management, analytical roles, and marketing. I'm also very interested in UX design and building things around customer experience. But a lifelong passion of mine, stemming from my time backpacking in the Sierras, is to work for a company involved in conservation and positive environmental impact. I would LOVE to become a sustainability consultant or work for a company where I'm able to make real change in saving the environment.
