Who am I?
Fun Fact: This is a question I often ask myself all the time, but I could never get the perfect answer.
For starters, I’m a current undergraduate at Vanderbilt University in Nashville, TN studying Human Organizational Development (Business & Psychology in short), and Engineering Science (Product Development & Computer Science in short).
I’m also on a semester-exchange at the National University of Singapore in Singapore, studying Design Thinking & Entrepreneurship.
I wouldn’t classify myself as just a student, but two main characteristics: an innovator & designer.
I define the word “innovator” as someone who pioneers a new subject. Someone who develops a new technology. Most importantly, it is someone who understands the science behind change. In today’s world, knowing the ins-and-outs of the technical & interpersonal skills for change is crucial.
As someone with experience in a startup and a large-scale organization, I have the skills to pinpoint an optimal perspective for a product to have the most significant change. Outside of work, I apply this skillset for projects for social good causes.
I define “design” as the ability to verbally and graphically illustrate change. It is a skill that I have always known as separate entities, but truthfully, they work in unison.
Design is something that involves understanding a problem from both a technical and interpersonal perspective. With these perceptions, illustrating such change is how information can get to the masses.
With experience in both product management & design, I strive to bring a creative, yet feasible strategy to design products that output the most impact.

Companies I have worked on projects with:
What About You as a Person?
A person isn’t just defined by their work, but also their hobbies and their personal quirks in life. For me, I see myself as a curious learner, meaning I go out and seek to learn new things from new people quite often.
Passion for Generative AI
This had led to Generative AI being one of my pasisons. Being exposed to it early on, I was fascinated by this technology. I often used it as a second brain and even now, I see it as my creative assistant — assisting me in thinking about things in perspectives I wouldn’t have noticed before.
Passion for Storytelling
Throughout college, I often write small stories and poems about life and the world around me. A wise mentor once taught me to always write down thoughts, as one of them can be life-changing. I often journal, write stories, and even develop short poems for fun!

Passion for Music
I personally do not see music as something I just listen to, but something I immerse myself in. Music, from when I was a child, always fascinated me. Also, music is something that can be treated as an international language, as everyone understands melody. On my free time, I analyze different songs to understand it’s inner meaning.
Passion for Mental Health & Psychology
Mental health means dear to me, as I know many who struggle with it on a daily basis. Declining mental health is a growing epidemic, and it’s one of my passions to try to offer a new perspective to assist many who struggle.
—> While still in incubation, Neural Avifauna was born to utilize music to assist many with personal mental health struggles.
Passion for Education
Education, specifically pre-college, is important to me because it is a stable education system that develops the next generation of innovators & designers. Specifically, I hope to include more innovation & design curricula in pre-college schools to better prepare students for the future.
