Co-Curricular/Engagement Experiences...

I have been involved with Duke Engineers for International Development (DEID) since my first semester at Duke, and have been able to work on the design and construction of various projects. Through DEID, I traveled to Uganda for two months in the summer of 2019 to finish the construction of a vehicular bridge and served as co-project manager for our first West Virginia bridge project that we constructed over spring break in 2020.

How I like to spend my free time...

Taking videos on my Super 8 camera, playing basketball, cooking, watching Survivor in hope that I'll be on the show one day.
