Running For: Council
I’m running because I love Cooper Union, it has been the greatest gift I have ever received and I’d like to do what I can to ensure more people have the opportunity to experience all that a Free Cooper Union has to offer. We have made huge strides, but there is work yet to be done. Keep Cooper Free, Keep Cooper Wild!
I graduated from the School of Art a few short months after students occupied the clock tower, bringing national attention to the dire issues facing Cooper Union for the first time. On the heels of being heavily involved in the student protests, I took a break from debating the philosophies of higher education and spent a while working with my hands as a co-founder and carpenter at Wood & Glue. Later I became a lead carpenter at the design and production agency The Brooklyn Guild. Always looking to learn more and challenge myself, I entered the tech-startup scene as a designer at Reelio, an influencer marketing platform that enables incredibly creative and influential video makers to work with brands. I’m super excited to now be the Director of Marketing at Reelio, responsible for brand strategy, marketing and design.
