UMBC is a place for my passions to come to life. It is a school of opportunity and growth. Working locally or abroad, I can go with confidence knowing UMBC and CWIT has prepared me well. I know that I have a community that will cheer me on as I go explore and expand my passions.

I am co-president of the student organization HackUMBC and director of HackUMBC’s annual 500 person hackathon event. I’ve had the chance to do summer research with NIST, and be a TA during the fall semester. I spent last winter working at the University of Hong Kong creating tools for e-learning initiatives, but most recently I am working at the Imaging Research Center (IRC) on campus to develop UMBC’s social media platform, Retriever Stories!
