- MAJOR: Applied Mathematics

Challenge: Failed his first geometry class and made the experience a motivating tool: he enrolled in the mathematics major. “It was an opportunity to make a new start in something I had been punching a brick wall at for years.”
Tech gave me: “My most valuable asset, motivation. Brooklyn Tech has ignited an insatiable flame within me to succeed.”
My special place: “The architecture of the auditorium, especially the mezzanine. I was in awe the first time I saw it. I thought I was in a Broadway production.”
Accomplishment: For an MIT competition, created an app that uses artificial intelligence and localization software to generate race track paths in the sky for drone racing.
College plan: “Prepare for a professional or academic setting in science. Computer science, AI, space travel. I feel more than prepared to tackle the challenge.”
For fun: Snowboarding in winter, summers sailing in Long Island Sound. Created a photographic history of life in the pandemic.
Extracurricular: Four years on the robotics team. The Centennial: “We’re no different than the hundred classes that came before us and the hundred that will come after… we all developed the same mindset: be productive and contribute to society.”
