About Me

CURRENT MISSION

travel the world and learn as much as possible

ABOUT ME

"I realized we lose a part of ourselves when we aren't trying to get lost, but when we do, we often unlock doors of perception that we never noticed before."

I read this quote in a climbing magazine, and I think it's been ringing quite true in my life as of late. I'm a senior in university this year, and trying out many new things. So far I have ballroom danced, played jazz piano, raced a three-legged race, and won a flag football game. I hope to include couchsurfing on the list soon!

I'm passionate about engineering, and enjoy the theory, discussion, and application of it--my goal is to continue working on international engineering projects as a full-time job. My other major time sinks are rowing, running, reading, and spending time with my roommates. I'm always game for new experiences, I'm incredibly driven, and I love a good glass of wine and a great conversation. My favorite things are chocolate, laughing, hugs, books, and new friends.

PHILOSOPHY

I am trying to do the most I can with everything I am given.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Attending a cooking class at the Ethiopian Embassy in DC.

Teach, Learn, Share

there are three different ways to measure forecast accuracy, the first is mean absolute deviation, the second is mean square error, and the third is mean absolute percentage error. I was surprised to learn that the MAPE method is usually most reliable.
