About Me


Find out what there is to see on this world before I confine myself to 4 years of sedentary study


I graduated high school in May 2012 and am set to go off to college for engineering (aerospace and robotics, I hope) in the autumn of 2013 (yay Caltech!) But because this is the first time I've had complete control of my life/education, I decided to skive off for a year and see what the world has to offer.

I love to bake, more than is really good for me. Cooking can be fun as well, although I eat no meat except fish (makes it simpler when I can automatically discard half the items on a menu!) I fold origami dragons when I get bored, and I attempt to keep up with my journal documenting my travels.


Oh, boy. My goal is to work developing new technology and exploring space because 1) they're cool and 2) I think they're worthwhile goals, advancing the understanding of mankind.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Seen the Mayan ruins at Tikal in Guatemala--so cool!

Been hot-air ballooning in Cappadocia, Turkey

Dropped everything to head for Gibraltar with three Australians and an American I'd just met. Ended up with a monkey sitting on my arms!

Took two lion cubs for a walk in Zimbabwe

Jumped off a bridge over Victoria Falls--twice. Once with a swing, once with a bungee. :D
