I grew up just outside Cleveland but for ease I tell people I'm from Cleveland (yeah, I'm that guy). I study at DePaul University and love every minute of it; DePaul's community, the city of Chicago and everything that comes with it. Global Brigades is a big part of my life. Other studies include Fudan in Shanghai and currently New York University Shanghai (at East China Normal University). I'm studying Management Entrepreneurship, International Business, and Chinese (Mandarin).
