Just kidding, I'm the opposite of that!
I'm not sure what direction I will take after school, but I'm really enjoying the ride and learning a lot of amazing things. I'm closing in on graduating so I'm thinking a lot these days about what I want to do next. It's a great place to be in.
I'm an avid skier and ski mountaineer. My first big mountain ski descent was Mt. Shasta a few years ago. Since then I've done a solo ski descent of South Sister and most recently, I climbed Mt. Rainier, but didn't ski that one. Maybe someday :)
When I'm not in my lab or just hanging out, I try to get outdoors. National Parks, old growth redwood groves, slot canyons, but mountains most of all.
I'm just enjoying my life, trying to experience as much of the best of the world as I can while trying to make it even better.

Being part of something significant
I think about existential questions. What are we? Where did we come from? Where are we going? Seeking some sort of insight into those questions is what got me into science.
