About

Reality

I’m a 2014 psychology graduate from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. Athletics have always been a part of my life mainly in the form of soccer, lifting, and biking. I’m generally up for any form of caffeine especially if it comes with a side of good conversation. If you’ve spent any time with me, you’ll quickly notice that I love to ask questions and like to hang out in the deeper end of life. I hope you’ll join me there.

Currently, I’m nomading across the world trying to find a place to call home while working as a happiness engineer at Automattic. You can read about how I made my way to Automattic here. As part of some of my wider efforts at the company, I co-started Accelerate.LGBT and Mentor Everywhere as two separate ways to help those who need it the most. Ultimately, I am looking forward to seeing where I end up in this world and who influences me along the way. I believe in the power of little things and try to capture them through photography.

Philosophy

“What you are in love with, what seizes your imagination will affect everything. It will decide what will get you out of bed in the mornings, what you will do with your evenings, how you spend your weekends, what you read, who you know, what breaks your heart, and what amazes you with joy and gratitude. Fall in love, stay in love, and it will decide everything.” -Pedro Arrupe

Goal

Learn something new everyday and lessen the sufferings of others (inspired by Neal deGrasse Tyson’s quote)

Dream

Own a coffee shop designed for facilitating connections between people over coffee.
