Professional Experience

What I’ve Done

Head of Growth/Content/
Community,
Ecosapiens

April 2021 - Current

Ecosapiens is a Web3/NFT project enabling consumers to make a positive impact on the climate. They raised an initial $1.5M from leading investors in crypto, climate, and consumer. I joined the team as a summer intern and employee number four -- leading community and growth initiatives. Thus far, I've grown the Twitter account from ~0 to 9800 followers and Discord from ~0 to 2300 members. I've worn many hats throughout this internship and have gained experience in business development, investor relations, growth strategy, event planning, marketing, market research, community building, content creation, copywriting, and the list goes on. Fun fact, one of my tweets accidentally went viral. Recently, I took a leave of absence from Harvard to continue working with the team here.

Founder, AntidoteDAO

December 2021 - Current

I founded AntidoteDAO with the goal of leveraging blockchain technology to fund different cancer initiatives. Our mission is to make research transparent and collaborative, and financially incentivize open science. AntidoteDAO will become a decentralized autonomous organization over time, giving governance and collective IP ownership to our community members. Other than a grant we received from LPCE 102 at Harvard, the project has been completely bootstrapped.

Sales Intern, Splitspot

June 2021 - September 2021

As a summer internship, I was part of the sales team hosting virtual tours, virtually connecting roommates, communicating with customers via email, text, and video, as well as getting leases signed. We were able to set records for the number of leases signed, week after week, boosting company revenue. Through this experience, I found an initial interest in real estate.

Creator, Social Media

July 2019 - Current

Over the past few years, I've amassed a large following on many different social media platforms by posting viral videos online. I currently have over 1,000,000 TikTok followers, 85,000 on Instagram, and over 3,500 subscribers on YouTube. I've since started to step away from creating content for myself to focus on leveraging social media for brands.

Co-Founder, ProjectIvy

January 2019 - May 2019

ProjectIvy was a clothing brand I co-founded with Beau Bartlett, a current Division 1 wrestler at PSU, and my high-school roommate. Our goal was to inspire others to pursue very high goals and achieve them through hard work and dedication.

Founder, OffPremeSoles

November 2018 - July 2019

OffPremeSoles was an account I created to resell "hype" clothing and sneaker releases on the secondary market. I made a profit by purchasing items for retail value and selling them under the secondary market price. I started this business in the 8th grade.

Academic Experience

My Studies

B.A. Economics, Harvard University

September 2020 - Current

I am currently a student at Harvard University pursuing a B.A. in Economics. I am also a member of HAPA, Harvard Blockchain, and a Division 1 varsity wrestler. I am currently on a leave of absence for Fall 2022 to explore a career interest.

Highschool Diploma, Wyoming Seminary College Preparatory School

September 2017 - May 2020

I moved away from home at 14 to attend high school across the country and pursue my academic/athletic goals. During my senior year, we were the #1 highschool wrestling team in the country. Having graduating in three years, I served as student government class vice president for two years as well as participated as a member of Leadership Club, True Blue, Baking Club, and Latin Club. I also played lacrosse for a year and was a varsity wrestler for four (beginning in 8th grade).
