About Me

MY MISSION IS TO LEAVE A POSITIVE IMPACT ON THE WORLD BY HELPING OTHERS GROW.

When I was little, I always dreamed of growing up to have two of the most incredible jobs ever. The first was becoming a marine biologist and the second a pizza deliveryman. Now, I know what you’re thinking. Why? Well, to me they were jobs that made others happy. A marine biologist could help teach people about aquatic animals and the oceans or even let people swim with dolphins (who wouldn’t want to do that?!). As for delivering pizza, growing up in the NJ/NYC area meant having the opportunity to eat some incredible Italian food. As a result, some of my fondest memories from childhood involve sitting down with family and friends after a long stressful week and devouring slice after slice.

I must be sounding pretty professional right now, right? Well, maybe I need to explain a bit more. Even though these two jobs sound rather childish, it made me realize that I had a core value or purpose in my life: to make people happy. Over time, this value transformed into something a bit more “mature.” Today, every decision I make revolves around my desire to help others grow and to bring about a positive impact on the lives of others and society. Although uncertain as to where this road will take me, I look forward to the challenges and opportunities ahead.

By the time I was entering high school, I knew that most of my interests revolved around computer science and business. Unfortunately, there were not many business classes available. So, I decided to become involved in the Web Development club and began to take on more computer classes. By the time I entered college, I had obtained a basic foundation in programming but had decided that my major would be centralized around business administration, particularly management. This was a though decision to make since I was so passionate about programming and technology, but I felt that a formalized business degree would help me best in the future.

After five years, I finally received my Master’s Degree of Business Administration with an undergraduate concentration in management and a minor in Web Programming. During my time at college however, I experienced so much between studying abroad in London, starting a variety of organizations ranging from E-Sports to social entrepreneurship, and making lifelong friendships. Today, I now have the knowledge and experience to further my career in helping develop and provide innovative products and services that help others to grow and that have a positive impact on the world.
