M.P.A. Candidate, Econ Wonk, Writer


So it turns out I have a few things to say. That’s why I started this blog–to examine public policy issues, create greater exposure to goings-on overseas, and, most importantly, to write more.

Before I came to Princeton, I worked at the Federal Reserve Board in Washington, D.C. on issues related to monetary policy.

I care a great deal about the public good, so I did financial education outreach while in D.C. I did similar things as an undergraduate at UCLA. My hope is that writing here in a small way contributes to important conversations.

And if that doesn’t work out I still have my thriller novel.
