I am a recent graduate of Brown University (2012- GPA 3.7) where I graduated with degrees in English Literature and Theatre Arts. I have always had a passion for teaching, first fostering this interest as a teacher's aid in my school's Lower School and as a camp counselor for a number of years. Teaching and education continued to be an important part of my collegiate life as well. As far as hobbies are concerned, I love Photography and travel writing. My favorite author (not a travel writer) is Virginia Woolf.


Recently, I was awarded an AT&T New Media Fellowship, an award given to those students who show promise in the combination of writing and new media, and am currently connected with Write Bloody, a publishing company based in New York City, where I work part time as an editor. While at Brown I worked as a member of the Brown Writing Fellows, a group of selected and trained students who show and aptitude in writing, editing, and the teaching of the two, and No Small Parts, an educational group that led performance and theatre workshops at schools in Providence, Rhode Island.

As far as my high school education/scores go, I graduated from Saddle River Day School (a small private high school in Bergen County, NJ) in 2008 as salutatorian and as a member of the Cum Laude National Honors Society. I was also the recipient of the Bradford Cooke Sommer Humanitarian Scholarship (2007) as well as the University of Rochester Bausch & Lomb Honorary Science Scholarship (2007). In regards to more specific subjects, I was an AP Scholar with Distinction having taken U.S. History, Calculus AB, Biology, Spanish Language, Spanish Literature, and English Literature.

I received a cumulative score of 2250 on my SATs (Reading 750, Math 700, Writing 800, Essay 12).
