About Me

I am a Stanford Senior

  • Story

  • Fun

  • Focus


Born and raised in Huntington Beach, CA I went to St. Bonaventure School and Ocean View High School. I was Valedictorian of Ocean View's 2010 class. The summer after my junior year of high school I started working at Advance Capital Resources where I learned most of what I know about online marketing. Later that year the CEO of ACR and I started Bob's Watches. Bob's Watches was built as an exchange for pre-owned Rolex watches and quickly became larger than either of us imagined it would.

In September of 2010, I enrolled as a freshman at Stanford University. At Stanford I continued my work with Bob's as well as working for Stanford's startup accelerator StartX and a startup At StartX I headed up marketing and advised both StartX and the companies in the program on online marketing and design. At I worked as a "Growth Hacker", working to grow their customer base through collecting, qualifying, and segmenting users. I was also President of the Stanford Men's Club Volleyball team. I will graduate in 2014 with a dual major in Management Science & Engineering and CS.
