Bio:

My junior and senior year, a fellow Oxy student and I formed a startup, PubSport. We raised seed funding and built an online TV guide for sporting events at local bars and restaurants. After graduation I joined an LA based FinTech startup, Currency, which provided several financing and payment services in the commercial equipment space. I am currently enrolled at the Kellogg School of Management at Northwestern University and will be interning this summer at an autonomous vehicle startup, BlueSpace.ai. Looking forward to chatting with anyone interested in autonomous vehicles, entrepreneurship, cleantech, surfing, or guitar.
