I’m an entrepreneur, data scientist, and education advocate.
I studied at Harvard before leaving to start Conduit, a tool to help people reconnect. I also founded the Project for Better Journalism, a nonprofit working to strengthen K12 student journalism programs, and serve on the advisory board for Sponsr.Us, a nonprofit student initiatives platform.
At Harvard, I was an accelerated bachelors’ candidate for a degree in statistics, computer science, and government; and a fourth-year masters’ candidate in statistics. I also facilitated research in the social sciences through our Institute for Quantitative Social Science, and taught computer science with CS50.Previously, I directed product at StratoDem Analytics, a real estate analytics and data science company. As hire #1 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.
