Hometown: Brewster, N.Y.
Major: Mechanical engineering
I knew there would be a lot of opportunities to interact with professors because of the small classes.
Most inspiring class:
“Intro to Cultural Anthropology” completely changed the way I think about people and the world for the better.
Also excited about:
Making the world a more sustainable place. I have become very interested in improving energy production, distribution and usage.
Favorite study spot:
The Engineering Department. My classmates are always there in case I need help or a laugh.
Seeing the passion my professors have for what they teach.
Three things I’m passionate about at Union:
- Engineering. Engineers have the ability to positively change the world and the future. This is extremely powerful – and it’s fun, too.
- Getting involved. I have been involved in many campus organizations, and they have all helped me grow and provided some of the greatest joys.
- Break dancing. As a member of our break dancing club, I not only learned some fresh moves but also was introduced to the inspiring people and culture surrounding it.
Traveling, mountain biking, mountain climbing, hiking, fishing and going to Yankee games. I’m a die-hard Yankee fan.
Most surprising thing about Union:
How diverse our student body is. I’ve met amazing people from all around the world.
How I’m making Union a better place:
As the president of the American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME) and the Break Dancing Club, I help students experience new things and find their passions both academically and culturally. I also founded the Engineering Student Forum to increase collaboration among the engineering organizations on campus.

I would like to travel and make the world a more sustainable place.
