I have always had a broad range of interests, from music and dance to software design and law. One thing that has been consistent, however, is the enjoyment I get from teaching. I have tutored academic subjects and taught music and dance off and on for almost a decade, and whatever other career options I pursue I expect that teaching – in one form or another – will always be part of my life. I have been working with students through Princeton Tutoring since 2011, and have had overwhelmingly positive experiences with my students. I have always had an interest in technology and games, and I worked as a software designer in California for a couple years after graduating from Princeton.
Since returning to New Jersey, I've been able to combine my academic interests with my experience in software in law school by researching intellectual property law as it applies to online technologies. Last summer I received a Google Policy Fellowship and worked in D.C. on technological policy issues.
Outside of academics, I am very interested in music, and play piano, guitar, and ukulele. I also am very involved in the local contra dance community (a kind of folk dance), and participate in swing dancing, blues dancing, and ballroom dancing, as well. Being a good teacher and a good student go hand in hand, so I try to expose myself to new kinds of music and dance to give myself opportunities to learn.
