Community Interests and Passions

I am a volunteer ski instructor and help teach K-12 minority youth in Boston how to ski. I aim to help diversify the slopes and the snowsports industry, one run at a time.

I enjoy American art history and viewing curated exhibitions. I have even curated a number of my own around Harvard - including this mock-up for a graded seminar led by a Harvard Art Museums curator.
