Real Life Impact.

Favorite CVC project-related memory was when the VC Client I had worked with as a novice first-semester analyst sent out an email saying that he landed a place on a $50M VC deal led by Sequoia and that our team's work had helped him a lot. It really helped me see that my interests were actually helpful to someone.

After freshman year, I worked at a Media & Enterntainment startup called Karma Records as a Software Engineering (SWE) Intern. The next summer I initially started working as a SWE intern at StartupTree here in Ithaca. Midway through I transitioned to a Product Management role and really loved the work I did. This summer I worked as a Product Manager Intern at Chegg at their HQ in Santa Clara, CA which was an awesome experience.

In my little spare time, I love listening to the Doors, playing my guitar and daydreaming.
