Brief Biographical Sketch:

As long as I can remember, I have always loved cars. I still remember 4 year old me, peering over the patio of my grandparents' apartment, naming the make, model, and horsepower of every car that zoomed past on the street. My love for cars was a seed that bore fruit in the shape of my passion for art and science. On top of being obsessed with cars, I am also a varsity fencer at Yale.
