Grew up in Rochester, NY as the child of a Kodak Engineer 🤓 and an Educator 👩🏼‍🏫. In the late 80's my Dad was on team that developed the first digital camera 🤳🏻, a position had him commuting to Japan 🇯🇵 almost monthly. While that was hard on the family, he always returned with some new gadget for me to play with. I became the nerd who brought a PDA organizer 📟 to class in the first grade.

Waste Management took us to TX for 7th grade through high school graduation. While moving is hard, it was this culture transition that truly broadened my perspective. I still feel like TX is home.

Amherst College was a humbling and empowering experience. I spent my time playing lacrosse, studying econ, comp sci, evolutionary pyschology, and running All College. I think I finally learned to not have to "win" at everything (because just wasn't going to happen)

#adulthood has been amazing and looking forward to more personal and professional growth! I spent my 20s in Brooklyn. I am now in Chicago with my beautiful wife, Maggie 👩🏻‍🌾 and our pup, Marlow 🐶.
