Having graduated MIT as an undergraduate in the Spring of 2009, I decided to stay on as a graduate student
at MIT in Mechanical Engineering. I have completed my Master's degree, and am currently a doctoral candidate.
I have been folding since the age of five and began designing origami in high school. In 2005, I was invited as a Yoshino Fund special guest to teach and exhibit at the Tanteidan convention in Tokyo, Japan.
I have been affiliated with MIT's origami club, OrigaMIT since 2005, serving as their President for 7 years until 2012. In continue to teach regular Workshops on MIT's campus.
Currently, I am the managing editor for OrigamiUSA's online magazine, The Fold and am a member of the OrigamiUSA board of directors.
In addition to folding and designing origami, I am also an avid singer, dabble in chess and rock climbing, and
enjoy spending time with friends and family.
