International Security and Economic Policy

I grew up in New Jersey and attended McGill University in Montreal for my undergraduate degree where I studied international relations and economics while also participated in the Big Brothers Big Sisters Mentorship Program. I was also a collegiate sprinter in track & field.

After graduating from college, I moved back to New York City to work as a government contracts assistant for a non profit organization providing social services. While at this position, I helped the organization retain funding for its after school programs in low-income neighborhoods in New York city.

While at the University of Maryland School of Public Policy, I interned at the Department of Commerce in the International Trade Administration for two semesters working on export advocacy and trade policy with regards to Latin America.
