Brief Biographical Sketch:

I was born and raised in New York City; there's no place I love more. I'm planning a double major in international relations and public policy with a minor in communications. I love making memes and can identify any song by Taylor Swift within the first 5 seconds. I've followed Esports on and off for about 7 years now. It's hard to keep up with such a vibrant scene as a college student, but I'm doing my best.
