I am a first-generation college student raised by parents who worked seasonal jobs in the skiing and whitewater rafting industries. Being raised between Alta, Utah and Polson, Montana (in the winters and summers, respectively) instilled in me a deep respect and curiosity for the natural world. Big mountains and clean rivers. I feel lucky to research the Earth system and I simply want to keep learning and teaching for the rest of my life.
For fun: running, yoga, climbing mountains, whitewater, skiing, kendama, juggling, dancing, and EDM.
