Exec Board

Albert Nichols: President

Hi! I’m Albert Nichols, a senior at Tufts majoring in Computer Science with a minor in Entrepreneurial Leadership in the Engineering School.  As a freshman and sophomore I was a member of the Sailing team.  I worked as an early employee at startup Abine during my sophomore year while pursuing ELS and conducting research in the online privacy space.  I currently work at IBM working in the Center for Social Business.  Right now I am President of TES.

I’m dedicated to creating the best environment at Tufts for classmates interested in ideas bigger than themselves and those who are motivated to create a better world.  Come join us! Come by a meeting, join in on a talk, or just email tuftsEsociety@gmail.com if you’re interested in getting involved.


Walt Laws-McDonald: Treasurer

Hi! My name is Walt and this is my second year with TES. I’m majoring in Quantitative Economics with a minor in Entrepreneurial Leadership.  I’ve spent this past summer working as an assistant trader at Geneva Energy in Dublin and am excited to get back to Tufts and help run Trading Hour

Give me a shout if you have any questions!

Ali Jutha: External Communication

Hi! I’m a junior at Tufts University in Fall 2012 and will be continuing to double major in International Relations and Economics.

My entrepreneurial interest stems from experiences swing trading the foreign exchange markets. I lead Trading Hour – a weekly meeting where TES members communally understand how financial markets evolve and share trading techniques.

Please reach out to me if you have any questions about finance or trading!

Kate Hitchner: Vice President

Kate is senior studying International Relations and Economics. In addition to TES, she is a mentor for the Tufts chapter of Compass Partners, an organization that exposes college freshmen to the world of social entrepreneurship. She has worked in a range of environments including an archaeological excavation in France, a non-profit (Project on Justice in Times of Transition), and most recently in a start-up incubator/venture capitalist company in Cambridge. In her free time, Kate likes to get outside to run, bike, hike, climb, and sail!

This year I’ll be organizing a lot of the club and how Exec board operates.  If you’re interested in joining exec board, or just want to talk about TES drop a line! I’d love to talk to you.

Brett Fischler: Events

My name is Brett, and I’m a sophomore engineer at Tufts. My hobbies have changed a lot over the last few years, but primarily, my favorite things to do are play tennis, write music, play guitar and piano, and spend time with my friends and family. The idea of becoming an entrepreneur has always intrigued me, and I’m hoping that between my interest in engineering and my participation in TES, I’ll eventually be able to invent a product and create some kind of successful business around it. That way, if I’m lucky enough to be asked back as a guest speaker at some TES meeting a long time from now, I’ll be able to inspire the members the same way that some past speakers have already inspired me.

This year I’ll be organizing a lot of the great events we throw every year.  If you have any suggestions, feel free to reach out to me!

Andrew Carp: Internal Coordinator

Hi! I’m Andrew Carp, a sophomore Electrical Engineer from Silicon Valley with an interest in ELS and social entrepreneurship. I worked as a Business Development Intern for an MIT based startup called Greenbean Recycle during Spring of 2012, and right now I’m attempting to take a dive into owning a few patents. At the moment, I’m the Internal Communications Director for TES, a brother in Zeta Beta Tau, an avid hiker/backpacker, and a chaser on the Quidditch Team.

I’ll be running all internal communications for TES this year so if you get an email, it’s from me! Email tuftsEsociety@gmail.com if you want to be added to the e list.  Also, check out our meetings!

Sonia Chokshi: Blue Key

Hi! My name is Sonia Chokshi, I’m a junior majoring in International Relations and French. I get out of bed every morning because I love helping awesome people accomplish what they’re most passionate about. That’s why I’m working with Kip Solutions, a startup that does social media consulting for nonprofits and social enterprises. Other than that, I jam out on my French Horn in the Tufts Wind Ensemble, and I contribute to a podcast called NewEmpireBuilders.com.

This year I’ll be running Blue Key for incoming freshmen.  I’m really excited to meet all the new Jumbos and am looking forward to this year!

Jared Bronen: Marketing Coordinator

My name is Jared Bronen and I’m currently a sophomore currently studying Computer Engineering ’15. I’m really interested in user-interface technology development, music education, and gamification. Outside of being a marketing coordinator for TES, I was a part of the Compass Fellowship last year, and I will serve as a mentor for the program as a sophomore. This summer I’m an editorial intern at collegehumor.com

I joined TES last year as a freshmen and really enjoy the group and guests who speak. I’m looking forward to meeting the new freshmen!
