Born in 1996, I have been perpetually described as having my 'head in the clouds.'  I attended Syosset High School in Long Island, New York.  After acceptance to the Wharton School of Business at the University of Pennsylvania, I deferred my admission to pursue my projects, and after some time, am back at Penn.

Due to my inability to sit still, I jumped at every opportunity to participate in business ventures, political campaigns, and non-profit organizations.

In my time off and before Wharton, I founded Students4Students College Advisory, a higher ed. consulting firm, and Millennial Marketing Strategy, a full-service digital marketing company.  

Now, I focus my time on Next Gen Summit. Next Gen is a global community and conference for the brightest young entrepreneurs worldwide to connect and collaborate, and get access to the resources necessary for personal and professional growth.

In December of 2015, I launched my best-selling book - What Wakes You Up? - and decided to donate all my profits to the Next Gen Foundation, a nonprofit scholarship granting organization.

Some people have paid attention to my shenanigans, and have featured me in Forbes, USA Today, Inc. Magazine, Huffington Post, and more.

I'm actively seeking new opportunities, and am so excited for what the future holds.  If you want it, my full bio is here.
