How do you “Have Fun Working Hard®?”
I love what I do! Building apps is really fun and takes a lot of hard work, so I always try to have fun when coming to work every day!

What is your favorite way to get involved at ALKU?
I enjoy participating VTO opportunities! The impact and community building that comes from it is so incredible to see and be a part of.

What is your day-to-day life like outside of ALKU:
I love to cook, so I’m always looking for a new recipe; I’m also currently on the hunt for the best bakery in the Boston area! I like to play basketball whenever I can, and I spend lots of time with my son in my free time.
