About me

I started college as a pre-med student who was on track to become a doctor in 7 years. I became a certified EMT, have spent 200+ hours volunteering in hospitals and conducted microbiology research as a freshman.

Despite checking all the boxes, something didn’t feel right.

At the end of my first year, a few friends and I attended a startup weekend at Rutgers. We built a chatbot that made it possible for people to text their doctor’s office for appointments.

It was the first time in my life that I felt like I was creating value.

Until that point, I used to believe that practicing medicine was the only way to help people. That weekend, I realized that making things people want was going to be my way.

This realization made me switch to Rutgers Business School, where I hoped to learn how to start a startup. I quickly realized it was not the place. Everyone was too busy trying to get jobs at big companies.

As a competitive student, I started to check boxes again. I became the president of our entrepreneurship society, worked full-time at startups while balancing a full-time workload, and landed an internship at a FAANG company during my junior year summer.

Again, like medicine, I realized this path didn’t excite me.

I reneged my offer at a FAANG company during my junior year and eventually decided to drop out to work at startups full-time.

I’ve mostly worked at venture-backed companies in product, operations, and growth marketing functions as an early team member.

Outside of the office, find me: reading, hosting dinners, writing, learning new skills, listening to a podcast, or exercising.

As of January 1st, 2020 I’ve moved to San Francisco.

If you’ve made it this far, let’s talk. I’d love to hear your story.
