I am on my way to becoming a therapist to help others in improving and maintaining their well-being. I am currently an Academic Coach with Private Prep and teacher with The Coding Space. I volunteer on 7 Cups to provide online emotional support.

In 2018, I graduated from Harvey Mudd College with a B.S. in Joint Computer Science-Mathematics. My research experience includes accessible technology, human-robot teamwork, and middle-school computer science education.

Personally, I love rock climbing, dancing, archery, karate, jujutsu, reading (e.g., Agatha Christie novels), freeline skating, video games (e.g., Ace Attorney and Professor Layton), animated movies (e.g., Zootopia and How to Train Your Dragon), Marvel, and anime (e.g., Denpa Kyoushi). I am agender, polyamorous, and have dealt with chronic depression and anxiety.
