Bio:

I currently work for the Giving Team at Bombas in New York City, a company that donates a pair of socks for every pair sold. Our small but mighty Giving Team collaborates with 3,500 groups across all 50 States to ensure that over 35 million pairs of socks, the most request clothing item in homeless shelters, reaches those in need.

During the 2016-2017 year, I taught English in Madrid, Spain, on a Fulbright Scholarship.

Career Advice:

Read "What Color is Your Parachute" and then reach out to as many people as possible to pick their brains. People, especially Oxy alums, are always have to give advice and help young folks, it's just a matter of picking up the phone.
