I’m an entrepreneur, data scientist, and education advocate at Harvard.

I'm a cofounder of Conduit, a platform that helps people reconnect and become closer. I also founded and lead the Project for Better Journalism, a nonprofit working to strengthen K-12 student journalism programs, and manage the Harvard Digital Lab for the Social Sciences. I also serve on the board of Sponsr.Us, a nonprofit student initiatives platform.

At Harvard, I’m an accelerated bachelors’ candidate for a degree in statistics, computer science, and government; and a fourth-year masters’ candidate in statistics. I also do and facilitate research in the social sciences through our Institute for Quantitative Social Science, and teach computer science with CS50.

Previously, I directed product at StratoDem Analytics, a real estate analytics and data science company. I led vision, product, and front-end, heading a team of three. I’ve also worked for two years at Teach For America; spent a summer interning in Houston’s busiest civil court; served as a design mentor for a startup incubator; and organized political campaigns for over seven years. Many years ago I also created the online academic planner Schooltraq, which has risen in popularity despite its age.

For the last six years I’ve lived in New England but I was born and raised outside the city of Houston. I graduated from Phillips Exeter in 2015.

Getting help for CS50

I maintain a CS50 page that might have answers to your questions. Reminder: To keep my inbox manageable, I respond to CS50 questions and emails twice a day or during scheduled office hours.
