I'm John Fish, and this video is a day in my life as a Harvard Computer Science student. I'm a freshman at Harvard college that makes videos, video essays, and vlogs about my life.

I'm about to launch into a pretty entrepreneurially focused summer--I've got a notebook coming as well as a clothing line (see links below). I'd love for you to join me.
