Running For: Council
After some time away to focus on the mission at littleBits, I am excited to return to the CUAA and engage our Cooper Union community. I have come to appreciate the importance of mission, community, and talent in its combined ability to build support for innovation.
Cooper Union has all three. I am passionate to not only help organize alums and current students to engage each other, but also external communities to help extend the reach of our alma mater. In our journey to return Cooper Union back to full tuition scholarships, I hope programs we develop as alumni can move to enrich the institution and its students alike.
