Curious. That's how my parents would describe me. As a child, I often tortured them with the infinite "Why?" loop until they finally broke down and bought me some science books to keep me quiet. In high school I took every science related course that was offered (including a 3 hour per day physics course!) to feed my appetite for knowledge. Science is not my only passion however, and upon graduating high school I pursued another interest: Music and the arts. I received a degree in Audio Engineering from SAE Institute and spent several years as a traveling sound designer and technician. I saw many countries and met people from around the globe. Rewarding as it was, I still found myself addicted to reading and watching videos about developing technologies and scientific breakthroughs. I finally decided to put a hold on my career in the arts to formally educate myself in the sciences. Even as a non-traditional student, I felt very comfortable with my return to academia. Much of my time between classes was spent tutoring my peers in Chemistry and Mathematics and I also received award recognition from the American Chemical Society for my achievements. I am excited to be pursuing my undergraduate degree in Chemical Engineering from Ohio State University and to be a part of this project!
