About Me

Currently, I’m serving as the senior managing editor of The Rensselaer Polytechnic, where I’m also the web and systems director. I help to oversee the weekly production of the paper, and I’ve also been focused on long-term projects to enhance our web presence and work on delivering news to the community in a more timely manner. Previously, I was the photography editor and then a managing editor.

I am involved with the Student Senate, where I am a Class of 2019 senator and the chairman of the Web Technologies Group. This committee runs services for the community such as Elections, Petitions, and the Shuttle Tracker, among others. In the past year, I’ve been working on a survey platform that will allow student government to gather information from the community in a completely anonymous fashion so that we can make better and more informed decisions, such as recommendations to the Counseling Center.
