Yup, that's me

Technology. Politics. Journalism.

I’m a recent graduate of Penn State University and I’m passionate about tech, politics, and journalism. I’ve worked for incredible companies like Google, Uber, and others. I’ve even given a TED talk about corporate ethics. Check out where I get my inspiration from, where I’ve worked, and what I’m up to now below.

Who inspires me

Robert F. Kennedy

“Few will have the greatness to bend history, but each of us can work to change a small portion of events, and in the total of all those acts will be written the history of this generation.”

Mountain View, CA

Last summer, I interned with Google’s Online Partnerships Group. My three-month project focused on company strategy around mobile programmatic advertising and allowed me to interact with business teams, product managers, and programmatic agencies.

State College, PA

I was a Political Reporter for Onward State and I covered events with Tim Kaine, Eric Trump, Chelsea Clinton, Kelly Ayotte, and Martin O’Malley. I wrote about a secret student group of white nationalists and even wrote about a student under threat of deportation and imprisonment abroad.

State College, PA

I helped launch Uber at Penn State. As Campus Manager, I was tasked with growing the supply of partners and building a team of Brand Ambassadors. Uber State College is now one of the most successful PA markets outside of Philadelphia.

New York, NY

I spent a year as the Growth & Community Manager for a startup out of Techstars NYC ’14 called Planted. Planted helps match recent college graduates with non-technical jobs at tech startups in New York, San Francisco, Boston, and other cities.

University Park, PA

I started my college career as the Director of Mid-Atlantic Relations and helped launch the Blockchain Education Network (BEN), a technology-focused nonprofit devoted to educating students about bitcoin and blockchain technology.

I also like to make videos in my free time

Check out my favorites below. One video even has over 2.5 million views!

(That middle one got me a search warrant for my footage from State College PD. It’s now framed on my wall, thanks!)

Penn State Phi Mu Bid Day 2016

Sorority Phi Mu hosted their annual bid acceptance day with their new sisters on the lawn of Old Main. This was my first attempt at any type of video production.

Penn State Students Rally with Riot Cops

After an incredible white out win over #2 Ohio State 24 – 21, Penn State students rally downtown in Beaver Canyon. Riot police on horses eventually broke up the celebration.

Pennsylvania Fracking Documentary

A short documentary looking at the growth of fracking in Pennsylvania and its link to contaminating drinking water, causing earthquakes, and the regulations on the industry.

I’ve even had press mentions in major publications
