I am born and raised in Marin County, CA. I am the middle of three brothers. My older brother, Greg, went to CU Boulder and my younger brother, Harrison, is currently a freshman at Chapman. I started rowing in High School and won two National Championships. Moving on to college, I was recruited to Santa Clara University for rowing. In my free time I love skiing, playing/listening to music, hiking, playing with other people’s dogs, and traveling.
What are you passionate about?
I love music, specifically how it’s made. The intricacies of sound design and composition really excites me because there are infinite possibilities for what people can use to make a song. I love discovering wild new ideas and instruments people have used in their music that haven’t been done before.
Where have you traveled and where would you like to go?
I have been to Italy, France, Germany, England, Switzerland, Canada, Costa Rica, and Argentina. I think my next trip will be to China, Japan, Australia, or New Zealand.
What’s the most non-traditional job you’ve ever had?
When I was in middle school I would reapply all the lines to local soccer fields through the entire season. Every week, once a week, I would spend 3-4 hours after school spray painting 13 or so fields. I used this fancy little cart that made it easy though, this wasn’t by hand.
What’s the hardest thing you’ve ever had to do?
I remember when I was very young I figured out that ripping a band-aid off quickly is much less agonizing than slowly peeling it off. I had a few band-aids on at the time and it wasn’t until the last one that I figured this out. That was a tough day.
