College Application Essays

The human mind is a beautifully complex thing in which there lies a minimal distinction between pure genius and absolute insanity. My father is a man of the highest intellect who fell victim to event-induced psychosis; the stress of his work caused him to blur this line. I was not rushed into independence prematurely as most children of the physically or mentally disabled are—my bills were always taken care of and my mother ensured that a home cooked meal...

Supplemental Essay for UMich: Unique question posed by school
263 Words
When I walk through Red Rock Cafe’s doors every Monday, I don’t know what to expect from that night’s open mic. This cafe is my community joined together by a common need to convey. People here exist in two spheres; one in which they communicate, and one in which they solely interpret. This inherent duality is further strengthened by the uniqueness of everyone’s demographics; these individuals have taught me to realize the depth behind the most...

I contribute to the unparalleled spectacle of robots coming to life for the first time, blossom with pride as I pitch business ventures to an investor, and bear witness to the beautiful interconnectedness of 808s and synthesizers every time I produce songs.

Only NYU fosters an environment for...

Supplemental Essay for Cornell: “Why us” school essay
681 Words
Visualize a cube. Its axes represent speakers, volume, and frequency, and none of its components can overlap—this is how I learned to produce music. Fascinated by this discovery and eager to push further, I co-wrote a pitch for Cubed: an application that displays this cube on a physical interface so one can see where musical tracks overlap instead of fiddling by ear. Cubed is a manifested combination of my interests in both entrepreneurship and musical production, but it isn...

Supplemental Essay for Stanford: Unique question posed by school

There’s no moment of mental euphoria quite like discovering the mechanics behind the deceivingly simple. This realization dawned as I produced my first song, a task I’d originally thought as facile. When my project instead became a horrible mess of clashing synthesizer and vocals, I shamefully resorted to scouring the Internet for every production tutorial I could find. There, I was advised to visualize songs as cubes: x-axis represents speaker pan, y-axis represents volume, and z-axis represents frequency;...
