Brief Biographical Sketch:

I love writing in all its forms, and at Yale, I serve as co Editor-in-Chief of The Yale Globalist, a quarterly print international affairs magazine. I also write columns, essays and long-form journalistic pieces for the Yale Daily News, and was a Scholastic Art & Writing Awards National Medalist for writing portfolio and a fiction finalist in Columbia College Chicago's Young Authors competition. This year, a short film I wrote was selected for the Yale Film Festival. I'm from Portland, Oregon, and I love Parks and Rec and drinking coffee with vanilla soymilk.
