entrepreneur, storyteller, and leader
I'm on a reflective journey trying to discover the beautiful complexity that surrounds me and my environment. By writing about technology, travel, good reads, and entrepreneurship, I'm discovering myself and uncovering my true passions. I hope you'll discover something profound through my experiences and opinions.
Performance and Teaching
When I started playing the cello at age four, I found practice tedious and tiring. But as I progressed, the immense joy it brought lead me to new heights. Since then, I've had the opportunity to play in numerous chamber ensembles, festival groups, and orchestras, each of which allowed me to improve my skills as a musician and develop in character. I find it liberating to perform with other musicians, many of whom have become lifelong friends. The lessons I learned through music have influenced me in ways I never could have imagined when I was four.
More recently, I have intersected my passion for music and entrepreneurship by teaching younger musicians the gift of music and cello performance. I've also been afforded the opportunity to perform at numerous weddings, special ceremonies and family events over the past few years.

Code and Projects
Computers are amazing. Being able to get computers to do what you want with code you've written is one of the most satisfying things. Since I was a young kid, I've been interested in developing my computer science skills and gaining proficiency in a number of programming languages.
As society becomes increasingly reliant on smartphone and wearable technologies, website and app development is becoming more influential. As industries like banking and healthcare look to automate once tedious processes, computer science is the clear answer. And as companies learn to leverage data-driven decisions, computer science is the solution to an age-old problem. The practical applications of computers and computer related industries are why I have decided to devote a large portion of my college studies to computer science.
Quote of the Day
Nothing in this world can take the place of persistence. Talent will not: nothing is more common than unsuccessful men with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education will not: the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent.
