What's something on your bucket list? 

I want to watch all four tennis grand slams (only been to Wimbledon so far) and would love to see Roger Federer play once live before he retires. 

What actor would you cast to play yourself in a movie about yourself and why? 

Tom Holland (in Spider Man) – I feel like Tom Holland captures some of my qualities and some of the qualities I wish I had so maybe it would make me look a little better. He is fun and light-hearted, but often overthinks small things and is confident in his own skills, cares about a few of his closest friends, works hard to achieve his goals, represents great character, and relies on mentors to make him better. 

What's your favorite place you've traveled to and why?  

Chicago in the summer of 2022. I got to be in Chicago over the summer for my internship and I got to see The Weeknd (one of my favorite artists) with my girlfriend of almost a year which was extremely special. 

Favorite family tradition: 

Home-cooking a massive Thanksgiving dinner and experiencing the “multiple cooks in the kitchen” where my mom, brother, and I try to manage dishes while my dad provides moral support from the sidelines. 

What is your proudest accomplishment? 

Achieving my full-time job offer with my dream job out of college at a top consulting firm. 

What did you want to be when you were small?  

I wanted to be a professional tennis player or a professional chef and wine connoisseur. 

My latest book recommendation: 

“Mindset” by Carol Dweck 

My life story in exactly one sentence:  

I have pushed myself through competitive tennis, academic pursuits in business and automotive, and new social situations positioning me for a strong exit from Georgia Tech with great friends to experience the world. 

My favorite restaurant in Atlanta:  

Hankook Taqueria 

My favorite comfort food or family recipe:  

Butter chicken (Indian dish) and rajma chawal (kidney bean curry with basmati rice. This is an Indian dish that my mom always made.
