About Me
My first semester at RPI I joined UPAC Sound and soon after, served as the equipment chair for two years. UPAC Sound provides on-campus services for events needing sound reinforcement and in my role, I repaired, purchased, and developed training for the equipment that students used in the Union and around campus. Through my position in UPAC Sound, I also became very involved in programming and activities groups on campus as a member of the Programs Board, which coordinates and encourages collaboration throughout RPI’s programming and activities related organizations.

After working in the Rensselaer Union as a club officer I joined student government as a club representative on the Rensselaer Union Executive Board and worked with the E-Board’s Business Operations, and Market Advertising and Publicity Committees.

This year, I am proud to serve the Rensselaer Union as the 127th President of the Union and to continue to support the growth and success of the Union and all of our student organizations. After graduation, I plan to work as an Acoustics and Vibrations Engineer at Boeing in Seattle, Washington.
