I am an avid backpacker, cyclist, and kayaker and my professional goal is to facilitate the creation of dynamic and vibrant communities.
I completed my professional degree in Architecture at Drexel University, specializing in sustainable housing, transportation, and the social study of science and technology. At Drexel, I served as Vice President of Drexel Smart House, a student-led technology incubator for sustainable building technologies.
After working as an architectural designer, I completed a professional master's in Urban Planning at Columbia University, focusing on housing, community development, and sustainable urbanism.
I spent the summer of 2012 at Singularity University as a teaching fellow. While there, I coached 2 international teams focused on incubators for premature children (end goal being ectogenesis) and mobile microtasks (think MTurk for on-PC).
My personal research interests are many but tend to involve cohousing, networks, sensors, personal data and disruptive educational models.
