Share a little bit about yourself.
I’m originally from south Florida and went to undergrad at the University of Florida (go gators!) where I majored in Computer Science. After undergrad I worked in analytics at a management consulting firm for a few years before coming to Penn. My hobbies include cooking new foods, hiking, and reading science fiction! I am coming into my second year as a DATS student and am graduating this December.
