About Me


discover. share. create.


I run a program at MIT that supports innovative student-led projects working on social impact. I'm always keen to learn more about entrepreneurship, innovation, art, new ways of looking at the world, development, appropriate technology, humanitarian issues and the like. Generally, what drives me is how to make lives better.

I laugh at the random. And find amusement in the oddities and ironies of everyday life.

I like to learn. Come willing to teach. I like to teach - if you'd like to learn.

I like to explore new things, new modes, new music, new places. Most recently, I took up skateboarding as a new mode of transit. Inspired by a friend, I tried my first wheatpasting experiment in Boston. I'm interested in learning more about public space and how art can engage communities - and experimenting with the possibilities.

A friend and I are working on an art installation/performance piece on the broad topic of humanity. It's in the beginnings, so there's not much to tell yet.

There's probably more. You'll find it out in person.
