I'm originally from the Midwest; I was born in Indiana and went to high school in Ohio. I currently live in the Lower East Side of New York and am working in the Markets division at Citigroup.

I love all outdoor activities, including mountain climbing, free diving, and hiking.

I also love learning languages, playing guitar, reading books, and road trips.

As an undergraduate at Boston College, I found a passion for figuring out how to expand financial services to all corners of the globe. I took a micro-finance class in El Salvador and spent a semester in Ecuador to learn more about how developing economies operate and may be improved. I have recently taken an interest in how digital currencies can be applied to this end.
