I graduated with a B.S. in Biology (minor in chemistry) in Texas, and graduated with a MSc in Physiology.
I've practiced Brazilian Jiu Jitsu on and off for a few years, as well as some Muay Thai/boxing.
I love neuroscience and the idea of smart prosthetics, and the study of sensory/motor systems in general. I'm destined to be a lifelong student, and I find learning and creating to be some of the most rewarding things in life. I enjoy building and making things, whether it's a drawing, woodworking, or making music. I've played everything from the oboe to the piano, although currently am out of practice.
