I graduated from John Bapst Memorial High School in Bangor, Maine in 2011.

I am highly invested in every group that I participate in and constantly strive to make this campus a better place. my future plans include attending graduate school for Mechanical Engineering and then pursuit of a  career in the paper industry.

As President of UMSG, Inc. I hope to continue to improve student life on campus. I believe that through my role I will be able to successfully effect change at this university. I am looking to further increase the transparency of Student Government and hope to engage the general student body through many outreach programs.
