Hello! I'm a mechanical engineering undergraduate student at the University of Texas Austin (expected graduation Spring 2024). I have a passion for project management, storytelling, and interactive user experiences. 



I am a senior Mechanical Engineering undergrad at the University of Texas at Austin with a minor in business and coursework in film and themed entertainment. I am lucky and proud to be part of the university's premier scholarship program-- the Forty Acres Scholars. I have served as the president, corporate vice president, and treasurer of the Texas Theme Park Engineering Group. I spent my junior year abroad at the University of Edinburgh where I joined a student theatre group as their set designer. 


This past summer I was a technical intern on a live show team at Universal Creative. Bringing together my passions for engineering, themed entertainment, and theater the role was a great fit for me and I learned so much about project management processes for themed entertainment projects. Two summers ago I was an MEP intern at Turner Construction in Boston, MA, where I learned all about construction management. I also interned previously for NASA and i2 Learning in roles centered around new project development and pitching these projects to company leaders. 


My greatest fun fact is that I directed a short film on the set of Knives Out! I am an avid biker, hiker, and bullet journaler. I adore travel, as I passionately believe in taking inspiration from travels when designing new things. My passion for international inspiration was what led me to take an entire year abroad (the photo above is from a weekend trip I took to Liverpool)! When I'm not on campus you'll find me in a history museum, beating a new escape room, or watching a Broadway show!
