Record Scratch. Round 2.

Ok guys. I apologize for the super vague introductory post that was here before. I'll be much more diligent in the future about capturing the Darden experience.

Let me introduce myself first. I was born in Shanghai, but grew up in Los Angeles (Los Feliz area) and went to college in Cambridge, MA. I studied East Asian Studies and Visual + Environmental Arts at Harvard and lived in Adams House (woo!). After graduating I worked as a business analyst on the emerging countries strategy group within Cisco Systems in Silicon Valley and then in entertainment product marketing at before I was on the founding team of Teach for Egypt (which is now defunct). I also love hyperlinks.

Here at Darden, I'm exploring tech, social enterprise, and social sector work through consulting, public finance, and entrepreneurship. I also work with Ashoka's Youth Venture to launch a new campaign for parents in addition to being on the business development team of a Philippine coffee collective called Kalsada. Life's good.

Feel free to reach out to me if you have any questions. The door is open.
