Brief Biographical Sketch:

I hail from the great state of Texas and have lived in the Dallas-Fort Worth metroplex my entire life. I grew up with a creek in my backyard, so I would go out everyday and explore the ecosystem that was just steps away from where I lived. I fostered this love of nature throughout my whole life, and I believe it is the reason why I want to become a scientist. As a Stanford undergraduate student, I am considering majoring in either Biology in the Marine Biology track, or Earth Systems in the Oceans and Atmosphere track. The ocean is full of mystery and has intellectually attracted me from a young age. I am excited for every opportunity I get to share with others my passion for the oceans.
