About Me

Ever since playing the original "Red Alert" on my older brother's Windows 98 PC, I've had a passion for video games. Many years later, when it came time to pick a university and a major, I didn't have a clue what to do!

During my college tours, I had an incredible conversation with Dr. Rhys Price Jones at George Washington University, who first introduced me to the concept of Computer Science. Right then and there, I decided to turn my passion into a life-long career.

Since then, I have been a dedicated computer science student at Northeastern & an innovative game designer both in and out of the classroom. My classes have challenged my intellect and creativity to ends I thought weren't possible; I continue to grow as a student and a person each day.
