I was born and raised in State College, Pennsylvania and attended State College Area High School. This is where I first became interested in both photography and technology, which became my main areas of study at Penn State. I dual majored in Information Sciences & Technology and Art (with a photography concentration) and graduated in May 2016. Learning about these topics came very easily for me because they are also my most valued hobbies. I currently work in the technology industry as a Network Engineer.
