Brief Biographical Sketch:

Hello everyone!

I'm a freshmen at Stanford, trying to balance a career, learn to better serve the world, and set aside time to contemplate life's mysteries. You might see me at the Haas Center for Public Service, in front of a white board looking at a giant math problem, reading Plato's Republic up a tree, or jamming out with my friends on the piano.

Through all this, I've learned that in the same way you can become better at math or english, you can train your own body and mind to become better at things many people consider impossible to change, such as your memory. I've used these ideas to get better at following my own dreams, and I'd like to help you explore them too.

- We don't receive wisdom; we must discover it for ourselves (Marcel Proust)
