I was born in Santa Cruz, California. I grew up in the San Jose area. I am currently in my first semester of Environmental Resources Engineering at Humboldt State University. Some of my hobbies include backpacking, hiking, horseback riding, reading, meditation, and yoga. I am especially interested in astrophysics and renewable energy. I enjoy traveling very much. I have been to South Africa, Switzerland, France and a few other places. I plan on traveling to Peru this summer. My overall dream is to build and own a 100% self-sustainable ranch.
