A little bit about me

I am a student at UCLA pursuing dual degrees: a B.S. in Statistics and a B.A. in Political Science. I am interested in data science, product management, and visualization. I am currently a finishing up my last year at UCLA and consulting as a product analyst at Qubole.

I currently sit as Co-President of my housing cooperative (University Cooperative Housing Association). As Co-President my duties including overseeing the over 2 million dollar annual budget and managing the day-to-day running of the cooperative.

In my spare time I enjoy traveling, hiking, and reading. I've been to 19 countries so far and I want to visit at least 100 before I turn 40. I'm currently reading Cryptonomicon (written by Neal Stephenson).
