Brief Biographical Sketch:

Hey there! My name is Daniel, and I'm a 20 year-old soon-to-be Earth Systems major at Stanford. I'm technically a junior, but I just transferred from Foothill College so this is my first quarter. I was born at Stanford hospital and have lived in Los Altos Hills, Mountain View and Stanford for most of my life.

I've always been passionate about the environment and its well-being, but it wasn't until I took an AP environmental science class in high school that I really understood the complexity and awesomeness of our planet and the challenges it faces. I hope to pass on both knowledge and appreciation of our environment to anyone who takes my class!

In my free time I like hiking, reading, video games, singing, napping, and getting BOBA with friends.
