Rigel balances a lot of things in his life, from MUNs, radio broadcasts and his other work and hobbies. As a business student, he likes to keep in touch with developments around the world. He loves technology and is frequently seen with at least several gadgets on his person. Experiencing a flurry of MUNs, he has chaired half a dozen of them around the world in 2019 alone (with two in Europe). He loves fun and memorable hangouts as well as gastronomy and astronomy. With about a dozen patents, he looks forward to working with the other Tech-loving delegates of ITU this HAMMUN.
