About Me


I am a fourth year physics student at Beloit College. I am very involved in our entrepreneurship center nd working this year to advise student ventures and organize events around entrepreneurship. These events include workshos focused on different skills/tech important for entrepreneurs, organizing field trips to makerspaces and incubators, and bringing guest speakers to campus. Currently, I am working on a start-up to create a better community around homebrewing by allowing brewers to share beer and feedback with other homebrewers through our site. Check it out at Brewswap.org. 

I love to travel, play music, and above all work on projects that are engaging and fun to think about. I enjoy school but I am excited to have time after greaduating to pursue a project I'm truly passionate about. Next year I hope to travel, work with a start-up, or pursue my own venture. Further down the road I hope to attend graduate school for Materials Science and Engineering.
