As an undergraduate student, he conducted research on youth civic engagement and the work of an education equity NGO, the Umkhumbane Schools Project, in Cato Manor Township, Durban, South Africa. He was a 2018-2020 Fulbright grantee at the Universidade Federal de São João del-Rei in Brazil. He served as a grantee leader in his second year, mentoring and assisting a regional cohort of Fulbrighters. As a Fulbright grantee, he co-designed and facilitated a number of experiential learning opportunities for youth and teachers in his host community, including Rock Paintings in Translation, a project linking the fields of archaeology and communications with the concept of global citizenship. Additionally, he spent two summers teaching English to students in Jiangyin, China and served as a post-graduate fellow for the College Life Division at Gettysburg College, managing a task force on student mentoring and assisting with special projects. His research interests focus on education development and civic and community engagement in higher education, specifically student democratic movements and how different types of institutions incorporate civic engagement into their mission in countries such as Brazil and South Africa.

He earned a BA from Gettysburg College in 2017 and an MSEd in 2021 from the University of Pennsylvania Graduate School of Education in the Education, Culture, & Society Program.
