About

Heya! I’m Adit (“uh-dit”). I’m a software engineer, web designer, aviation enthusiast, photographer, writer, and avid roadtripper. I’m currently a senior at the University of Chicago, majoring in Economics with a specialization in Data Science.

I most recently worked as a Software Engineering Tech Intern at Digitas for the Intel account. Prior to that, I was an undergraduate VC Intern with Chicago Ventures, and a Marketing Intern alongside the amazing team at the Polsky Center for Entrepreneurship and Innovation.

On campus at UChicago, I help lead Midway Ventures, a student-run startup consulting group that teaches undergraduates about venture capital financing.

What I Believe:

I believe anything can be taught to anyone. I think of education as a matter of work ethic, accessibility, and privilege—not innate talent.

I believe discomfort is the greatest motivator. I tend to get complacent when I’m happy with where I am.

I believe in humility. In high-school, I worked at McDonald’s between classes, extracurriculars, and applying to college. Working in the service industry was one of the most humbling experiences of my life.

I believe in acceptance. My parents were immigrants to the U.S., and throughout my childhood I watched their sacrifices manifest into opportunities for their children. Regardless of your race, religion, color, or creed, I believe you belong here.
