I graduated from Dartmouth College in the class of 2011. I majored in Computer Science with a focus in security research. I have interned at Memento, Inc, contributing to aspects of their enterprise fraud detection application. I also interned at Kurzweil Technologies, working on the Kurzweil-National Federation for the Blind knfbReader project, developing special OCR applications for mobile devices. Prior to that, I co-founded and co-developed DebateNet with Mark Bao. Additionally, I have worked as a webmaster and developer on many smaller projects.
I spend a significant amount of time working in the field of emergency medicine, as an Emergency Medical Technician. I currently work with a town volunteer fire department as an EMT. I previously served as Director of Dartmouth Emergency Medical Services, a student-run BLS quick response squad. I also worked with a state medical response team and a federal disaster medical team which both focus on mass casualty incidents.
I have a history of entrepreneurship and leadership - first inventing a throw-and-catch toy called Pocket Bungee® at age 9. I incorporated SMR Enterprises, Inc. to serve as a parent company for this product, and received a US Patent (US D438582) and trademark on the invention. Within SMR, I managed the legal aspects, finances, production, and marketing of this product. My entrepreneurial spirit manifests itself today in terms of creativity in research rather than toy design, but I remain interested in physical design as well.
