Education:

I graduated one year early from North Brunswick Township High School to work at startups full time.

Occupation:

I'm currently a full-time SWE at Bloom (YCS21), an investment brokerage for people under 18! I also work part-time at an edtech startup called Knowt doing Software Development and Business Operations.
