About Me

I came to Cambridge to attend MIT and study electrical engineering and computer science. After graduation I decided to stay in Cambridge and committed to making it my home. I live in Inman Square, work in Kendall Square as a software engineer, and have no intention of moving anytime soon. I play the piano well enough to entertain myself, enjoy rock climbing and hiking, and can occasionally be found gardening. Also, I love movies and have seen over 1000 and counting.


Social Activism


Green Cambridge - Board member

Green Cambridge is the only sustainability organization focused entirely on Cambridge, MA. We envision a more socially connected and equitable present that works toward a climate resilient future. As a board member, I am on the fund raising committee and have spoken before the City Council to advocate for the importance of trees and green spaces in a thriving and equitable Cambridge.


Upgrade Cambridge is a grassroots organization that seeks to raise public support for municipal broadband that I helped co-found last year. We believe that a city-owned network that provides reliable high speed internet service to all of Cambridge, regardless of the ability to pay, is necessary to address digital equity. Over the passed year I’ve helped organize events and spoke before the council in support at every opportunity. We launched our petition last year to tell the city manager to move forward to the next step towards this goal. I carry a copy of the petition nearly everywhere I go so I can collect signatures at any time.

The Inman Square Neighborhood Association (ISNA) was started in November 2016 by a group of residents who wanted to become more involved in our wonderful, historic, independent neighborhood. Every month we hold a meeting where we discuss issues relevant to the Square and surrounding neighborhoods. A different local business owner is invited to each meeting to feature their business.

I’ve voted in every local and national election since turning 18. I canvassed for the Obama campaign in 2008 and for Hillary in 2016. I spent most of my 2018 August and September weekends canvassing in New Hampshire for various Democratic campaigns, including Annie Kuster’s successful reelection bid for congressional district NH-2.
