My most memorable Brandeis experience?

The first time I went sledding was amazing! Coming from Arizona, I had never seen snow before. It was so fun to be able to down the hill next to the library in my own homemade sled.

My favorite activity outside of class is...

TAMID! I have been a part of it since my first semester. I get to do pro-bono consulting with companies, and it even gave me the opportunity to go abroad and work in Israel at a DJ technology company in Tel Aviv.

My favorite place on campus, in Waltham or in Boston is...

LA Burdicks next to the Boston Public Library is my favorite place to go in all of Boston. I go into Boston every other weekend via the Brandeis shuttle, and I always make sure to stop by LA Burdicks for the *best* dark hot chocolate that I've ever had. I'll then visit the Boston Public Library and spend the day studying or exploring some of the great restaurants the area has to offer.

My favorite Brandeis class/professor is...

Pito Salas! He focuses on this idea of 'applied' Computer Science, and all of his classes have a real-world focus. I've built some cool projects in his class, like an interesting Waze/Facebook Events combination for social protest organizers.

I'm passionate about...
