Personal interests/hobbies

I am involved in many activities in campus so most of my free time and energy goes into those. I am EMT certified and spend a significant amount of time volunteering with LMU EMS. I am also a member of the Crimson Circle, a service organization on campus with a focus of providing strong male role models to high risk youth in the LA area. In the small bits of free time that I do have I enjoy spending time with my roommates and going on evening runs.

Career Goals

I am hoping to attend medical school after my time at LMU. Right now I am leaning towards a Doctor of Osteopathic (DO) degree as LMU has connections with several DO programs. After medical school I would love to do a residency in emergency medicine then a fellowship in pediatrics so I can be a pediatric emergency department physician. However, becoming a doctor is still a long way away, so who knows what may change in the coming years.

Why I love biology

I love how I can apply biology to every aspect of my life. Everything from sitting down to eat a meal and thinking about how society farms and modifies animals and plants to fit our needs to the role that hunger impacts the moods of politicians and potential influences our laws, are grounded in biology.

Favorite aspect of computer science

I really like the unknown that comes with computer science. Every year there are massive leaps forward in the field and I am excited to see what impacts the field will have on society in the coming years.
