“When I look back upon my life, I want my legacy to be ideas generated, solutions implemented, and lives changed.”

Among Teis’s many talents are improv comedian, podcaster, author, and board game developer. He’s also a human-centered designer who wants to apply his artistic energy to creating products and experiences that allow individuals to express themselves, make connections, and deepen their understanding of the world around them. One of the issues Teis is most passionate about is providing under-privileged youth with access to quality education that also has a positive social impact. The MITidm experience will help him deepen his existing design skills while acquiring the necessary engineering and management skills to bring his ideas to life. Teis has a Bachelor of Arts in Economics from Harvard University.
