In my free time, I try to push myself to new physical and mental limits outdoors. I can usually be found rock climbing, trail running, or mountaineering. My favourite destinations include Tuolumne, Joshua Tree, North Wales, and Pembroke. Technical, runout slabs and crack climbing– I’m a trad junkie.
Unique to me
I’m obsessed with tiny puppies– properly incapable of maintaining composure. I hiccup a lot, especially when I’m nervous… it’s embarrassing. I sleep with my eyes open (weird right?) and have super-smelly nose powers. I’m also a DDR master and truly believe Zelda: Ocarina of Time was the best game ever. Word.
Training from the age of 6, I always wanted to be an artist. Physics was not part of the plan, but it was a natural fit. I didn’t grow up looking through a telescope, building robots, or conducting experiments at home. As an adult, I chose to be in physics because it provided me with a new, beautiful way to see the world and understand my place in it.
