Ithaca, New York, United States
My life story, as told in a tiny little text box.
I study Product Design and Data-Centric Systems (an independent major) at Cornell University. I was originally a Computer Science major, but took some time off to make things at a product design firm called ZURB, where I realized that asking "why" is almost always more interesting than just asking "how."
My first time through Cornell I helped run POPSHOP, a student-run entrepreneurship co-working space, co-founded my own housing startup (Yorango) and worked for a computer vision startup (TaggPic). I also did a little work with the amazing people at Cornell iGEM (Cornell's Genetically Engineered Machines team).
Now that I'm back, I spend my time as Creative Director of Cornell University Sustainable Design (CUSD), a 150+ person student project team specializing in sustainable architecture. I'm responsible for brand and identity, recruitment, long-term strategy, leadership development and anything else that a manager of managers needs to do to enable a corps of highly talented engineers and creatives. With whatever time I'm not spending on CUSD, I'm trying to foster a stronger design and open data community at Cornell.
