Exploring ePortfolio Research
In July 0f 2012, I attended an ePortfolio conference held in Boston by the Association for Authentic, Experiential and Evidence-Based Learning (AAEEBL). I joined Professor Stevens and fellow Wentworth Student Kyle Laird at the conference, and shared a testimony of this experience in a brief video at the following here.

“Leveraging your ePortfolio” Seminar
During my senior year, I was the project leader for a technology transfer research and application project. Our project team concentrated our research on how to use the Electronic Portfolio (ePortfolio) effectively in leverage relationships and create your brand image. We held a seminar that was open to all Management students at Wentworth, where we presented our research and held a Q&A session to spur further discussion on the subject matter. We discussed topics which include important concepts such as networking, career branding, and creating a strong presence online.

Duck House Research Project, Fall of 2009
The Duck House Research Project is a volunteer field based research project, which involved gathering research data on the potential use for an abandoned building in the Back Bay community. This building, the “Duck House,” is located on a central piece of land in the community. This research project helped us gain an understanding of some potential uses for the property through discussions with members of the community.

Community Work Study, October 2008 to May 2009
For the MathPOWER organization, I tutored middle school students in a variety of subject areas, with a focus on math.
During my time working with MathPOWER, I most enjoyed building effective relationships with the students. My position gave me a great opportunity and platform to serve as a positive example and role model to the students through my dedication to the job and my desire to see them succeed in their studies.
