  • Description

    I'm kind of a hippie mixed with an adrenaline junkie mixed with a nerd. I'm curious about nearly everything, although I can sometimes come off as quiet and shy. I love any activity that involves spending time in nature (skiing, climbing, backpacking, biking!). I'm studying electrical engineering to help advance clean energy, fight climate change, and bring electricity to developing parts of the world. I've also got a strange interest in circus skills like juggling and acrobatics, as well as playing musical instruments.

    Fall 2018: Study abroad in Norway
    Spring 2019: Take a gap semester to travel and work around Europe!
    Summer 2019: Find an internship in clean energy
