I enjoy reading textbooks to learn more about the world. I'm currently working through Kleppner's An Introduction to Mechanics and Emery's Civil Procedure and Litigation.

Composing Music

I have composed and arranged music since elementary school, with instrumentation ranging from solo piano to full wind ensemble.

Craft Beer

I'm a huge IPA fan. I'm currently digging Ballast Point's Sculpin IPA, as well as anything that Dogfish Head brews.


I've played since I was four years old, although I took a bit of a hiatus in college. I'm looking forward to exploring the numerous world-class courses in the Bay Area.

Country Music

I've enjoyed this genre for as long as I can remember. While a lot of country artists are too pop-sounding for my taste, some of my favorite acts include the Zac Brown Band, Montgomery Gentry, Eric Church, and Turnpike Troubadors.
