Heyyyy there ๐Ÿ‘‹๐Ÿพ

Welcome to my site! ๐Ÿ˜Š

A quick intro: I am a coterminal student at Stanford University studying Management, Science, & Engineering (MS&E). For undergrad, I studied Computer Science (Human-Computer Interact track) with a minor in Communications (a focus on media studies). I've previously explored software engineering roles at various tech companies but I am pivoting towards more communications & management geared roles. I am particularly interested in roles that require me to interact with individuals and help alleviate their pain points (whatever form this may be, I'm open).

In my free time, I enjoy walking my dog (Loza ๐Ÿฆฎ), longboarding ๐Ÿ›น, hiking (anything outdoorsy), attending live music events ๐ŸŽถ, traveling/exploring new food/restaurants ๐Ÿœ, and spending time with loved ones ๐Ÿ’–.

I hope to connect with you in the near future! ๐Ÿ˜Š
