Welcome to my personal website.
Learn more about me below.
Get to know me:
Since I began my professional journey I’ve been lucky to have had the opportunity to collaborate on some exciting solo and collaborative projects. I take pride in all that I do and in the long-term relationships I’ve fostered in the process. I firmly believe that hard work eventually pays off, and I know that each day brings me closer to reaching my goals. Explore my portfolio, and feel free to get in touch with any questions.
Who am I really?
Putting my resume aside, I'm a California kid with a mixed background (🇯🇵🇵🇭🇸🇪🇮🇹🇵🇷) who left home at 14 to chase my dreams in both sports and school at a Pennsylvania boarding school. Fast forward a bit, and I skipped my junior year, became internet "famous," got recruited to wrestle at Harvard, and then took a detour.
I ditched the traditional path, took a break from school, and landed in the hustle and bustle of NYC to dive into the startup scene and create some real, unfiltered content on YouTube.
I'm all about lifelong learning, taking big risks, trying my hand at a bit of everything, and deep down, I guess I kind of look like Sharkboy, at least according to some folks.
What I've Done (So far)
Chief of Staff, Ecosapiens
April 2021 - Current
Ecosapiens is a Web3/NFT project enabling consumers to make a positive impact on the climate. We've raised a total of $5M from leading investors in crypto, climate, and consumer. I joined as employee #1 -- leading community and growth initiatives. Last year I took a leave of absence from Harvard to continue working with the team. Currently, I wear many hats across marketing, research, strategy, and community. I've also organically grown the Instagram to 100k+ followers.
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.
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.
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.
