I am researching Artificial Intelligence Policy at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. For more on AI policy, click here.


Specifically, I am building a framework that will facilitate an environment in the United States that promotes more AI innovation, while doing it it an ethical way. 

In addition, I host the Audacious Journey Podcast. Check out my conversations with CrossFit Athlete, Chandler Smith, Clemson's Isaiah Reid, and Buffalo's Jovany Ruiz.


I help collegiate athletes monetize through their talents and experiences through a startup called, Mercsin. We help student athletes facilitate high ticket mentorships. Mercsin is revolutionizing how college athletes are getting paid.

Lastly, I run a scholarship in my home area for student-athletes pursuing a degree in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM).
