Who I Am  

A Little About Me

I'm a rising Junior at the University of California, Berkeley studying Ecosystem Management and Forestry and minoring in Sustainable Business. Though my major is a little unconventional for what I am to do with my life, I believe that it has equipped me with a different lens than others to view and solve problems when presented.

Interesting Factoid

I am an official notary public in the state of California.
