Background:

I grew up in Charleston, WV and graduated from George Washington High School. I enjoy writing, playing jazz guitar, traveling, playing frisbee, and spending time with friends. In the next three years at Caltech, I hope to pursue physics with an interest in astrophysics and cosmology. I've thought about continuing to grad school in physics, but I have also given consideration to science journalism. I like physics because it's like a very long corridor with a door at the end labeled "The Answer." I imagine I'll spend my entire life running towards the door and never reach it, but I'll get an incredible runner's high while trying.
