Who I Am  

A Little About Me

I was born and raised in the suburb of Orinda, a small town close to Oakland, California. Among other benefits, this allowed me to become a Warriors fan when they started winning without being dubbed a bandwagon. After High School, I started college at Loyola Marymount University in Los Angeles, and after studying there for a year I transferred to my dream school, USC. Some things I love about LA are the tacos, the beaches, and USC's campus. In my free time, I like to play the piano, cook, and play/watch sports (Tennis & Basketball). Also, I'm a big Avatar & Naruto guy. Although COVID has shaken things up a bit, I'm loving every moment at USC, Fight on!
