I was born in Pasadena, CA and moved to Liberty, MO (a suburb of Kansas City) when I was 7 years old. Since high school, I have nearly always been involved in some form of academic competition - I have competed in national competitions in science bowl and quiz bowl in both high school and college. Unfortunately, those skills have not yet translated into sustained success at local trivia nights, but it won't stop me from trying. During my senior year at WashU, I worked in a computational research group modeling catalysis of greenhouse gases.
