My self-summary
I'm one of a handful of young professionals who is originally from the DC area, went off to Princeton for college, and came back home to "change the world" - or rather work in the education nonprofit field.

In general, I believe life is meant to be truly experienced and enjoyed; that's how I live my life and I strive to help others do the same.

And I'm an ENTJ.
What I’m doing with my life
At the moment, I'm picking up new hobbies including photography and kayaking! Also, catching as many Nats games as humanly possible!

From 8:00 am to 6:00 pm, I run operations and programs for a national nonprofit that provides affordable internet access to low income communities. My passion is closing the digital divide and I'm thankful to work in the digital inclusion space :)

I'm also a loyal fan of my hometown teams Wizards, Caps, Nats, O's (grew up with them) and Skins (even though Dan Snyder makes it really difficult to love them right now). Aside from that there's a lot of concerts, museum trips, and movie outings in my life.
I’m really good at
Event Planning - my #1 skill!

Corny, yet adorable jokes - that's what my friends say.

Old-School 2D fighting games - think Marvel vs. Capcom

Community Service - it's fun to help others!
The first things people usually notice about me
My socks - I have a mad awesome sock collection and like to rock different colors each week!

2. Quality Food
3. Great Books - especially biographies
4. Meditation

I spend a lot of time thinking about
What can I do to make this world a better place, for my family, friends, community, country - but, do it in a way that is innovative and leaves my own unique signature?

What do Black lives really mean to America?
On a typical Friday night I am
Either out having dinner with friends, going to a lounge, sports game, concert - OR at home chilling out with a nice classic movie.
