Hi, I’m Tys. I work as a business analyst at Seurat Group in South Norwalk, Connecticut developing data-driven insights for leading consumer brands and emerging challengers. I grew up in Wilmington, New York with my brother and parents, and I now live in New York City with my girlfriend and two cats. I graduated from Tufts University in May 2021, where I wrote my thesis on how Hegel’s political theory influenced the transformation of American freedom and the state in the twentieth century. I’m proud to have shared the 2021 Belfer Award for Best Thesis for my research in political science.
