An alumnus of Penn State University with a Bachelors of Science in Civil Engineering, I am currently pursuing a Masters of Science in Civil Engineering and Urban Planning at the University of Maryland.

I have been involved with the Institute of Transportation Engineers (ITE), Traffic International (TI), the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE), and the American Planning Association (APA). As a part of ASCE, I have competed with Concrete Canoe.

Past and current jobs include being a hospital volunteer, a saboteur of Wal*Mart, a cart pusher / boxer at Henry Schein, a library gardener, a commercial janitor, a chef at Tully's, a civil engineering intern, an auxiliary police officer, a traffic engineer, an emergency responder, and an aspiring emperor of Earth.

I have both Synesthesia and hereditary spherocytosis, which may explain my infatuation with spheres.
