I was born and raised in Colorado, lived Seattle, WA for 6 years, and now live in Washington, DC. I grew up with a special appreciation for the environment, raised by National Park Service employees in Colorado. I always had an interest in preserving the environment combined with scientific curiosity, which led me to chose a career in chemical engineering. My goal has always been to use science to help make the earth a better place to live.
My aspirations center around making science more inclusive and accessible to people through writing, outreach, and policy-making. Science should serve every person of our society, and in order for that to happen it should be more accessible to those people who have historically been excluded. I am trained in environmental and energy policy and research, and interested in the intersection of energy and environment issues and social issues.
In my free time, I enjoy being outdoors. My hobbies include camping, hiking, snowboarding, kayaking, and just enjoying the outdoors. I also enjoy watching, playing, and discussing football and fantasy football.
