About Me

CURRENT MISSION

To paint with all the colors of the wind.

ABOUT ME

I grew up in Chicago and studied engineering at Northwestern. After spending 6 months in southern Africa, I started working for the CDC as a field assignee in Madison, Wisconsin. My work centered around injury/violence prevention and maternal health.

Currently, I'm in medical school at the University of Wisconsin (an awesome place to be!)

PHILOSOPHY

Life is the adventure you make it.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Drifting idly into the subconscious dream world beside the one I love as the glittering star-painted sky over Door County, Wisconsin slowly faded into nothingness.

Scuba diving in the Great Barrier Reef with my mom was also pretty bad ass.

Teach, Learn, Share

I can teach you the seven principles of leave no trace camping or talk to you about how NOT to climb a mountain. I'm also a master of the Krebs cycle...

I would like to learn how to make lasagna. I'm 0 for 2 so far, and it's starting to affect my self-esteem.
